Webquest: St Patrick’s Day

Send scholars on a webquest on St. Patrick's Day! Computer enthusiasts search the web to answer a series of questions, write a mini biography about St. Patrick, discover and write a summary about the holiday's symbols and traditions, and print festive pictures to create a collage.

Instructional Ideas

  • Give pupils a copy of the answer key to check their work after they have completed the webquest 
  • If time does not permit every activity to take place, conduct one a day during the week of St. Patrick's Day, or allow learners to choose one they wish to complete on March 17th 
  • Flip your classroom; assign the internet research portion of the lesson for homework then work on the written and craft activities the next day at school 
Classroom Considerations

  • Searching the web for images may result in class members viewing inappropriate materials; enable a safe search or list specific website to visit prior to assigning activity 4 
  • Requires copies of the worksheets plus individual picture copies
