The Great Irish Famine - Class Projects

Wednesday, June 20, 2012

We did projects about The Great Irish Famine, An Gorta Mór. We finished them today. We learned a lot about the famine. Here are some facts:
The Great Famine in Ireland lasted from 1845 to 1850.
The famine affected lots of people in Ireland because of potato blight because so many people depended on potatoes for food.
I million people died from hunger and disease.
1 ½ million people left Ireland to travel to other countries. (news by Karina, Jodie, Niamh).

Here is a video of our projects.  The song that our class is singing is an Irish ballad set during The Great Irish Famine called 'The Fields of Athenry' -

Your children are really good singers. The topic is interesting to teach to my students.
Is this the reason why Irish moved to America?
