May the Road Rise Up to Meet You: St. Patty's Day Fun

4 Favorites 0 Copies
Science +2 Age Levels Primary (5 to 8 years old), Elementary (9 to 12 years old)

I created this collection for families to do together while schools are closed. I will be making a collection a day while we are out of school. Today we will be exploring St. Patrick's Day. The idea is for families to look at the items in the collection and consider what they see in the objects and paintings, what they think, and what they wonder. Families can also watch a free Brainpop video about St. Patrick's Day, read articles about magic folk, and listen to the read aloud Rainbow Fish. At the end of the collection I have provided a few ideas for families about what to do next.
