Ireland Project

Project
Over the next two weeks the children will the working on an individual project based on the theme- Ireland. They will present it on the 27th of March. We have discussed it in class and come up with suggestions of topics linked to the theme. These include;
·         Rivers/Mountain of Ireland
·         A county in Ireland
·         A famous Irish building
·         A famous Irish person
·         Irish food
·         Irish sport
·         Irish Music
·         An Irish Legend e.g. Fionn and the Fianna
·         An Irish President
The most important thing is that they pick something that interests them.
Presentation
Each child will decide to present their project in a different way. Some suggestions in class were;
·         Powerpoint
·         SESE hardback.
·         Display folder
·         Poster Paper
·         Model of a building e.g. Malahide Castle

The main thing to remember is;
·         The children understand the content.
·         It is in their own words. (not copied and pasted from a search engine)
·         It is presented neatly if handwritten.


Here are some links to help explore your ideas.
