The Story of St Patrick and How to Draw a Shamrock

St. Patrick's Day is rapidly approaching, and if you're looking for a resource that will teach your students about Saint Patrick's Day, learn about Saint Patrick and the snakes, and add a little bit of holiday fun, then this FREEBIE is for you!

This Mini Book explains the story of Saint Patrick and also shows your students how to draw a shamrock. Did you know that the shamrock is a symbol of St Patrick's Day because when Saint Patrick was a missionary he used it the symbol of the three-leaf shamrock to explain the idea of the  trinity (father, son and holy spirit) to the Irish?
