The following Bloom's Taxonomy activities are hands on, practical and creative. This pack contains Olympics activities. The activities involve tasks about the origin of the Olympics, the Olympic spirit, winter and summer sports and host countries.
Using Blooms Taxonomy Framework, this resource will enable you to use it as a tool for higher order thinking and build upon the work that you have taught them about the subject. Staring with basic skills such as knowledge and understanding, students then will be challenged to apply facts that they learned and apply it in creative ways.
For example, a Create Task asks students design the front and back of an Olympic medal. For this activity to be successful students will have to look at previous designs and its relevance to that country. Students will need to understand a country's cultural background and display it as an effective symbol. You can take this a step further and get students to actually create their design using clay and paint their finished product.
It is also great to be used as an independent task or a homework extension for students that need an extra challenge. The framework allows you to date when they have completed a task so you can keep track of their progress. In the classroom, I like them to finish at least 3 activities before advancing to the next skill set.
As a heads up, some of these activities will prove to be of more value when completed together as a whole class, and therefore you may want to select those activities and use them as class competitions or whole class learning experiences.
