How can students create a Winter Sport Game using recyclables and classroom supplies? This is a hands on cross-curricular and full Project Based Learning Unit using Winter Games.

This unit is fully DIGITAL and PRINTABLE

This unit includes an optional presentation at the end which is great for practice on speaking and listening when students present their final projects.


Students will read books (included) about the winter games, write an informational writing about the Winter Games, choose a country to research, choose a game to research, close reading passages about countries and winter sports, Informational Writing about a country or a winter sport, research opportunities, study maps, make flags, create a Winter Game through a STEM Activity, group work, and present it all in a final culminating event.

It is packed full of all the PBL Elements (see the preview).

Full detailed lesson plans are included and it is fully differentiated.


You can teach the students through videos or in your live meetings about the various winter games. All assignments and activities can be assigned in a virtual platform. For the STEM part tell the students what to expect and it would be a great idea to build one of the activities on your live meeting so that they can see an example. Included is a list of project ideas that can be given to them to help. For the ending presentation students can make a video or present during the live meeting.
