3/12/2012 Everyone's Irish 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, 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.
For now here are some other great sites to learn about St. Patrick's Day.
