Blarney: A Game of Deception

Blarney: A Game of Deception

Blarney is an Irish term that means a kind of speech full of nonsense or the ability to convince people of anything. Where did the Irish get such a word? In Blarney: A Game of Deception, children learn about the legend of the Blarney Stone, along with the rules for a fun game where they must decide which player is lying! A page of cut-out cards featuring popular Irish symbols like the red deer, leprechauns, and a pot of gold offers additional cultural appeal. Play Blarney: A Game of Deception with your fourth and fifth grade students during St. Patrick's Day, for a unit on Irish history, or to take a lively break from routine.
