Center Focus

Irish Mobiles

  1. You will need a plethora of information about Ireland for this center. Make sure to have books, magazines, brochures, encyclopedias and Internet access is a plus!
  2. Have your students do some research on Ireland in general, making notes of things that are of interest to them.
  3. Based on what they learned, your students will create a mobile using a shamrock template. Download one here. They will use one shamrock for each topic that they write about and illustrate.
  4. They can then hang these shamrocks on hangers using string and a hole-punch.
