Irish Culture Resources

St. Patrick’s day is a lot of fun, but how many American’s actually have any understanding of why it is a holiday in the first place? While celebrating the holiday is a start to introducing children to cultural traditions, it’s important to go beyond the celebration and help make sure that the children have an understanding of the Irish culture.

Here are a couple of websites that can help introduce children to Ireland – all are developmentally appropriate and full of photos and videos to give children a better visual understanding.

The opportunity to do a little research and peek into different cultures always encourages wonderful conversations.  Take some time to look around these sites and anticipate some of the questions that your students might have so that you can be prepared to support their curiosity!
