An Nollag - Display & Activity

An Nollag - Display & Activity

This resource contains all the necessary displays for your Irish classroom this Christmas.I use these as a game first to introduce the vocabulary to my students. They are placed around my room and students are given a list of Christmas vocabulary in English. They then have to find the Irish equivalent. It's nice to watch students discover the vocabulary themselves as opposed to looking at a PowerPoint and writing everything down in a vocabulary book.Once the lesson is finished they can go onto a display board. I've attached the .pdf for easy printing.

It is very much geared towards Leaving Cert Ordinary level but I have also asked all to Higher Level students as well!There is over 100 basic questions that cover a wide range of topics.
