Everyone knows St. Patrick’s Day as the day we dress in green and dream about leprechauns. But it is also a great day to honor the Patron Saint of Ireland, Saint Patrick. It is his day, after all! This FREE Unit Study provides everything you need to teach a lesson to your homeschoolers about the holiday.

I based this unit study on the book Patrick: Patron Saint of Ireland by Tomie dePaola. If you’d like to purchase it on Amazon, here’s the link (just click the image below). Or, look for it at your library!
