Happy Mousey Monday from Mousey to our Cache and Cookies readers! Aside from being Mousey Monday today, it is also Saint Patrick’s Day! Saint Patrick’s Day began in the seventeenth century as an observance by the Catholic Church. For Christians, the day commemorates Saint Patrick and the arrival of Christianity in Ireland. As time has passed, the holiday has become more of a celebration of the Irish culture.
Discovery Education has an entire Content Collection on the holiday called Saint Patrick’s Day that you can share with your students in the classroom.
The Content Collection includes full videos, video segments and clip art.
The Content Collection also includes Teacher Guides for all grade levels and includes lesson plans as well as vocabulary that are grade appropriate.
We hope that Discovery Education’s resources are used and enjoyed by you and your students in celebrating Saint Patrick’s Day! If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to tweet us at @DESupportStars with #mouseymondays! Have a great day and rest of the week!
