St. Patrick's Day

Hi you all!
St. Patrick's Day is just around the corner! It's celebrated on March 17th!
This is the anniversary of the day St. Patrick died many hundreds of years ago. But... who was St. Patrick? 
He lived in the fifth century, that's more than 1.500 years ago! 
St. Patrick is Ireland's patron saint. 
That means that people from Ireland believe that he protects them.
However, there are many thousands of people around the world who celebrate this special Irish holiday, as Martha in Buffalo explained to us last school year. 
3rd graders had the opportunity to have some information about that celebration with this presentation. They also colored a shamrock and  learnt some vocabulary about the legend with this wordsearch
