Saint Patrick’s Day Picture Cards

Here are 32 vocabulary pictures cards that illustrate Saint Patrick’s Day. Their chief role is in intense oral work. There are challenging and inviting activities possible with flashcards which make the students want to speak. For example, Kim’s game!


Kim’s game

The name ‘Kim’s game’ is from the novel, Kim, by Rudyard Kipling, in which Kim and others are trained to memorize objects. In the traditional version, there are twenty small objects on a tray which, after one minute, is covered with a cloth and participants recall as many as they can.


Level: 8 to 12 years old (A1, A2)
Organization: whole class
Aims: to observe, memorize and recall vocabulary.
Language focus: any lexical set, in the example, Saint Patrick’s Day words.
Materials: flashcards for one or more lexical sets and word cards to match the flashcards (optional).


Display eight to ten pictures on the board. Children say the words. Give the learners 20 seconds to look in silence and memorize the set of flashcards. Then ask the children to close their eyes and hide the flashcards with a sheet of paper. Tell the learners to open their eyes and write down as many names as they can remember. Then ask them to tell you what they have written. Finally, remove the sheet of paper and let the learners compare their list with the pictures.

Let’s play Kim’s game ! Look carefully and try to memorize. Close you eyes. Open your eyes. Write down as many names as you can remember ? What have you written ?

  1. These flashcards are super cute in general, thank you for sharing them. But, what’s up with the botched map of Ireland? A map of the whole island/ nation would be much more appropriate, especially considering that Saint Patrick himself is said to be buried in Downpatrick, Northern Ireland.
    Sincerely, a disappointed EFL teacher from Northern Ireland.

  2. It is amazing, thank you! The only suggestion I make is that maybe it would be more appropriate if the leprechaun wasn’t holding a beer, I’m using the flashcards with preschoolers next week and it would be better if there wasn’t any beer in his hand at least!

    It’s great tho, thank you so much!
