Forced to Flee: Famine and Plague

Learners examine facts about the Irish Potato Famine and explore primary resources, such as newspaper articles, photographs, songs, and poems, related to the famine. Once research is complete, they create a small collage of their sources about the famine and combine each individual collage to make a class mural.
