About This Lesson

Combine fact and legend in this fast paced story of Saint Patrick and how he banished snakes from Ireland. Included are: three presentations (teachers notes, for audio/visual, handout); activities including individual, small group, entire class, as well as, short and long term activities; student handouts that support the activities; teacher supplemental that support the activities. 

A narrated slide show can be found on our website:

The Activities Guide includes icons where the activity includes: Math, Science, Geography, Writing, History, Research, Art, Music, Presenting, Vocabulary, Active, and Analysis.

Time range: 30 minutes - 2 hours
This is a very flexible module that allows the teacher flexibility in time and activities. The presentation can stand alone, or be partnered with student activities which can be 20-30 minutes, several hours, or even a month or more for a group project. 

Before getting started, take a few minutes to read the "Read Me First" file. It will explain the entire process and the flexibility of the education module. 

With the students, start with the presentation where you can read or have students take turns commentating. The teachers' notes section includes additional information you can ask the students about or be prepared in case they ask you! The presentation itself takes between 20-30 minutes. 

There are a variety of activities to choose from for students to participate in. Some activities are individual which can be done in the classroom or taken as homework. Others have a group or presentation aspect. Supplemental material is included for many of the activities whether in handout form or additional information.
