Social Studies: St. Patrick - Symbol of Irishness

Students examine the history of St. Patrick's Day by creating characters and dialog reflecting Irish culture. A major part of the lesson is the construction of a float for a St. Patrick's Day parade. Also, students research and answer questions about Irish immigration to the United States and describe the origin and importance of Irish symbols.
