TOP 20 SITES FOR YOU AND YOUR STUDENTS ON ST. PATRICK'S DAY!
In honor of this past weekend's St. Patrick's Day Parade in Atlantic City, I am posting some of my favorite resources for teaching St. Patrick's Day.The most fun can be had on http://www.irelandseye.com/leprechaun/webcam.htm, where my students and I keep a sharp look out for passing leprechauns. During the month of March students also build leprechaun traps to demonstrate their mastery of simple machines. This lesson will be posted tomorrow.
