PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Go for the Gold!!! Students will follow clues to describe Olympic sports and vocabulary using the descriptive language of who, parts, location, and action. Visual structure is provided throughout the activities. These activities promote descriptive language skills, social interaction with questioning and answers between peers, and expanding sentence structure.
