St. Patrick's Day Unit Study - Day 6

Day 6 - More St. Patrick's Day Symbols

Shamrocks-  People believe that it is lucky to find a 4 leaf clover.  They also believe that the leaves have special meaning.  1 is for faith, 2 is for hope, 3 is for love, 4 is for luck! 

We read the book The Luck of the Irish by Margaret MacNamara.

Then we colored a little teddy bear with a harp coloring page while listening to Harp music that I found at the library!  We glued our decorative bear onto the cover of our lapbook.  Did you know that the harp is the "official" national symbol of Ireland?  It's true!!

We also read from Kathleen: The celtic knot while coloring a pretty celtic knot pattern that we also added to the cover of our lapbook!
