  • Introduce the lesson by displaying a map of the world and pointing out where you live. Show students where Ireland is on the map.
  • Tell students that they are going to learn about an Irish holiday called St. Patrick’s Day. On St. Patrick’s Day, people celebrate Irish culture by wearing green and eating traditional food like corned beef and cabbage. Tell students that other symbols of St. Patrick’s Day are clovers (or shamrocks) and leprechauns. Leprechauns are mythical Irish fairies that like to dress in green.
