What are you talking about?  I just checked out both ppt and your is hands down much better.  The other one is good, but your is more factual and has other things that I could use.

BTW, the names for the leprechauns, are those student names or just random English names that you used?  I may change them with my student names that I have.
Been here for two + years and I plan on staying for quite a bit longer

Just a point - but the video of the blokes dancing is not Irish... its Scottish - though there have been other St. Patrick's day presentations on here that have made the same mistake and its not like the kids will know any different!

And most scholars now tell us that he was born in Wales (not France or Scotland).

Has anyone had success with this?  I think the PPT is wonderful and the info is good and the Jeopardy game works well and all that, but the kids just don't care.  I don't know if maybe it's too foreign for them or maybe I'm just not teaching it well, but they show about as much interest in the info as if it were a straightforward grammar lesson.  They are interested in the quiz for competition's sake, but the first half of the class seems very boring to them.  No matter how much I try to pump up St. Paddy's Day, they don't care.  I don't think they connect with it at all.

I have used this in two of my classes. They also were not interested at all. I just think it is not an ting holiday to them. I mean, I never knew why it was celebrated. I just like it because it is an excuse to drink some good beer.

I've been introducing St.Patrick's Day in all my classes today and the kids love it.
I wore lots of green today including nail varnish, earrings, badges and scarf etc.  My co-teacher and I are also wearing St.Patrick's Day headbands with Shamrocks and Leprechaun hats on them. 
Used a simple PPT of Pictures and between my co-teacher and I we are explaining it to them.
They have asked lots of questions and are really into it.
Hope others are having success too.
good luck :)

Wow, I learned many things that I didn't even know. Did you do some research, or how did you know about it?

Good presentation, but a few historical inaccuracies. St Patrick was born in Wales. Also it very uncertain the day he was born and the day he died. What is certain is that he came to Ireland from 431-435 AD.

A basic St Patrick's Day presentation and some activities.  The rhymes went down well with my 3rd grade middle school students.

In case anyone cares, the first official St. Patrick's Day celebration was in Boston, not Dublin - which means the holiday is more American than it is Irish.

Jeopardy is great...but I also found that UNO cards work really well too. I am sure there must be a way to incorporate that into a Snt Patricks day theme.

St. Patricks Day is next week Thursday and would love to a lesson on it. I assume it's big here, because where I come from it's not really celibrated. Hopefully I posted more than five posts to be able to see these Powerpoint Presentations.

Cheers for this. I am hoping to give a lesson on St. Patrick next week.

In case anyone cares, the first official St. Patrick's Day celebration was in Boston, not Dublin - which means the holiday is more American than it is Irish.   

While the first official Parade was held in New York in 1762 (organised by Irish soldiers serving in America at the time), St. Patrick had a feast day celebrated in  Ireland long before that, so I would hardly call it an American holiday.

Guys, would you teach this lesson only on St. Patricks day or with all your classes the whole week?

Great presentation.  A quick side note though for the Jeopardy quiz.  There are actually 23 countries in North America not 3.  Great job all the same!

Hi,

I looked it up and while New York has the longest consecutive parade to date (1762), but the first parade was held in Boston some twenty five years prior that year (1737).

I am from Boston too so all I know is that it's pretty much a huge deal.  :)

Since Paddy's Day is on Saturday this year, I'll be using this lesson all week :-)
