Hi Darryl, I'm just starting my unit on celtic Ireland, too. There is a
great classroom curriculum available from Kim Solga--(Who is so great at
what she does). They run about 3 or 4 dollars and she is on her website at
KIDSART. I just looked up some archeological stone settings and will do a
vocabulary on terms, cairn,dolmen,etc.
There are a few coloring pages of celtic knot work so we will do those and
make our own and maybe print them. I have some cheap brass wire so we will
use wire to bend into spiral jewelry and we are going to each make an
illuminated(sort of ) letter of their first initial out of clay. Like a
large m made from a slab of clay and the add texture ciols, etc. to make it
ornate. Will make great paperweights or hangings. If the are good, I will
luster fire the pieces myself so they have a bit of burnished gold (could
use acrylics). So far that's it for the unit. Will also listen to lots of
music styles. Can't waitI'm excited! Hope this helps,From:
