This study will help prepare your children for the Olympics in Pyeongchang, Korea from February 9- February 25th, 2018. This is taken from a Western Canadian perspective! You can choose either the “Gold, Silver or Bronze” options for this unit study. Many choices depending on your time and interest. Ideas are placed in a suggested Scope and Sequence with extension ideas for Language Arts, Math, Social and Science, Art, PE and Religion.
This has come from 18 years of "Olympic ideas" compiled into a 5 day unit study before the Olympics and ideas to extend learning into the days of the Olympics. Every 4 years, my kids groan as mom pulls out her Olympic file and capitalizes on a natural learning moment about the many nations of the world under one roof. Over the years, I have added curriculum connections for nearly every subject and also taught 1/2 day workshops.
* Hyperlinks to websites highlighting the Science behind the Winter Olympic Sports
* Crafting ideas for primary grades like the 5 Olympic rings with toilet paper tube "brushes"
* Link to "Flags of the World" resource to use for playing "Go Fish" and learning about the countries of the world.
* Bible verses that relate to the Olympics like St. Paul's "I fought the good fight. I have finished the race, I have kept my faith." 2 Timothy 4:7
