ST. PATRICK'S DAY ACTIVITIES - HISTORY 

St. Patrick's Day is full of history, both history made of legends and myths, and factual history. No matter if you have high schoolers or elementary children, they are bound to find something of interest in learning the history of St. Patrick himself or his Irish legacy. By the way, did you know that St. Patrick wasn't really born Irish? Read more about the history of St. Patrick.
