This unit of study is designed for 3rd-5th graders. Included in here:
- A close reading passage about the Sochi Olympics getting ready
- A fact sheet about the Olympics to gather some background knowledge.
- A research essay where students will select an Olympic sport and then an athlete that competes in the sport. There are note taking sheets or you may use the notes as a planning guide for the essay.
- A group activity where students will design & develop an olympic torch. (Obviously, no fire... use colored tissue paper to act as flames) However, students design the dimensions, color scheme, & theme of their torch.
