Ireland and St Patrick Unit Study

I plan on starting an Ireland/St. Patrick unit the week before St. Patrick's Day and continuing the week after.

All the resources I use are either free or cheap.

The one thing I use for country studies that isn't free or very cheap is Little Passports. Also, when we lived in Virginia I would run out to World Market and grab things from the country we were going to study next. I MISS THAT!!!!

I hope this helps as you study Ireland and St. Patrick! :)


  1. My favorite Country! I have a huge Irish dog ans lots of Irish ancestors! Your kids are so lucky to have you working so hard on their education!

  2. We love Ireland!:) Here are some of the resource I used to teach my kids about Ireland: http://kidworldcitizen.org/category/europe/ireland/ There's a recipe for scones, an Irish movie, books, and a lesson/craft about Irish sheep. We got to visit Ireland for 2 weeks when my 8 year old was only 2, and fell in love with the country!:)

  3. WOW!! I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to go to Ireland!! It's at the top of my bucket list! ;)
    THANK YOU so much for sharing your resources!!!! :D

  4. I love St. Patrick's Day. Every year we have an Irish dinner with the traditional corned beef, cabbage, red potatoes and soda bread washed down with some ale. It's a rather simple meal, but delicious. And Irish music, of course.

  5. Sounds GREAT!!!
    We always have nearly the same meal! LOL

  6. Great list of resources, Stacy! I pinned your post to my Kids' St. Patrick's Day Activities Board at http://pinterest.com/debchitwood/kids-st-patrick-s-day-activities/

  7. This is a GREAT list, Stacy!! I have never considered doing a St. Patricks Day unit with my girls, but now you've got me thinking about it!

    Thank you so much for linking up to the Hearts for Home Blog Hop! Blessings!!

  8. Wow! This is a really comprehensive list of resources! Thanks for linking up with "Say It Two Ways Thursdays"!
