I have always loved Ireland. I’ve never been, but it is probably the one country in the world I most want to visit. I don’t know if it’s the accents, the landscape or the old castles that draw me there, but I just know it is calling my name.
Because of my love for Ireland, I have convinced my children this should be our first international trip (not any time soon, I might add). However, with St. Patrick’s Day approaching, I thought this would be the perfect time to introduce our next Geography Unit Study – Ireland!
While this is not a complete unit study on the country, I think simply adding some additional reading resources and possible a recipe or two and you will cover just about every subject. In this study your students will be introduced to the native language (links and flashcards provided), different maps of the country to label waterways/rivers, counties, main cities, fact files, and notebooking pages for recording other geographical & government facts.
If you’re wanting to use this as a spring board for St. Patrick’s Day, be sure to check out all my printables. With these fun printables, you will have a fun-filled week about the holiday and learn all about the country of origin too!

I know you’re probably worried about knowing how to say the correct pronunciation of the alphabet. Have no fear. I have included YouTube links in the unit for each area of the alphabet. I found the instructor easy to hear, follow and understand, so I think these will be fun for kids to listen and at least attempt the sounds.
