SLIDES. See a historical magazine cover, greeting card, parade shots, the opening of the Shamrock Hotel, the new postage stamp honoring Irish Immigration, the Empire State Building lit up for the holiday, the Chicago River running green, even good old Saint Patrick himself. You won't see any leprechauns or pots of gold here, just 20 images to prompt discussion and memories with your group. A script for the slides is included in the Leader's Guide.
ACTIPHILE. A dozen activities: postcards to decorate and send, famous Irish-Americans to match up with their accomplishments, a crossword puzzle using Irish song titles, a recipe for making Irish flags out of jello (sort of), sentence starts, nametags, a choral reading, a door decoration, a monologue, a list of events that happened on March 17th, and a sing-along song. There's more than a wee bit of fun to be had here!
LEADER'S GUIDE. A six-page guide includes a script to read along with the slides, discussion questions, program ideas, and suggested resources.
