St. Patrick's Day is a fun March holiday that students of all ages like to celebrate. The projects below have been developed to help deepen students' understanding of the holiday, its history, and its significance.

St. Patrick's Day

Everyone knows that St. Patrick's Day is a holiday associated with leprechauns, shamrocks, rainbows with pots of gold, and all things green. But does everyone understand the history behind the holiday or the meaning behind the symbols associated with it? Teaching students everything about St. Patrick's Day can be a fun process, especially when students are engaged in projects that keep learning moving and interests high. The following projects, developed for students ranging from late elementary to high school, have been designed to help students connect with and apply what they learn about this interesting, green holiday.
