For teachers in the United States! If you are a teacher in Canada, go to the Winter Olympics pack created for Canadians.
This informational and activity pack was created with the purpose of having students make personal connections with the Olympics.
Teachers can use this Olympic pack in many different ways. It can be printed as individual booklets for each student, used for sharing basic information about all aspects of the Winter Olympics, or solely used for the student-connection activities.
These activities can start a great 5-10 minute classroom discussion each day leading up to the Olympics with potential writing activities and small group discussions. It will be even more exciting when the students come to school excited to share examples of what they’ve learned at school and seen on T.V.
