In this resource, students participate in two activities to engage them in the 2018 Winter Olympics in fun, yet challenging ways!
First, students use two sports from the Winter Olympics to practice and refine a variety of math skills through word problems and a graphing activity.
Next, you and your class will have the opportunity to take part in a fantasy football type of "draft", where you will choose five countries to represent your team throughout the Olympics. Each nation has a value, and you have to construct your team using a $100 budget. It is a very unique way to engage your students in the excitement of the Winter Games!
This resource could be used in a whole class, small group, or intervention setting. However you choose to use it, I believe you and your students will find it beneficial.
This FREEBIE is a portion of my larger resource, "Gold Medal Math." If you are interested in checking that product out, please visit:
