Happy St Patrick's Day!

Happy Saint Patrick's Day everyone!


This week at Unit Study Roundup, our theme is Saint Patrick's Day.  My contribution to the Unit Study Roundup for this theme is a word search.

What is Saint Patrick's Day?  Saint Patrick's Day is the feast day of Saint Patrick who is the patron saint of Ireland.

He was born in Britain, kidnapped and taken to Ireland at the age of 16.  He escaped and then returned and is credited with having taken Christianity to Ireland.  It is celebrated on the anniversary of the day that everyone believes that he died,  March 17, 461.   The first ever Saint Patrick's Day parade was not in Ireland but was in America on March 17, 1762.  It was Irish soldiers who were serving in the English military paraded through the streets of New York and this parade helped the Irish soldiers there to connect with their Irish roots and with other Irish soldiers serving in the army at the time.

Today at Tales of Education at Home, I am sharing a word search that I created with some words that have an Irish or Saint Patrick's Day theme.

The words and phrases you will need to find are:

BOHDRAN
CABBAGE
EMERALD
FESTIVAL
FIDDLE
FOUR-LEAF CLOVER


GREEN
HARP
IRISH
LEPRECHAUN
LIMERICK
MARCH

POT OF GOLD
RAINBOW
SAINT PATRICK
SHAMROCK
SNAKES
TRADITION


I have saved this on my Google Drive and you can download it from here: Saint Patrick's Day Word Search


Unfortunately this time I was having technical difficulties and could not embed the PDF into the blog post, so I apologise for making another link to click on.   I hope that you have fun doing this.
