Here is a fun Olympic-inspired activity I did with my students today. I asked them what they could win gold in. The event didn't even have to be invented yet! I had lots of fun and creative responses: napping, slam-dunks on a Little Tykes hoop, watching movies, having a messy bedroom, etc.
You could do as little or as much with this theme as you'd like. Create a bulletin board or have students write paragraphs explaining why and how they would win. I used it simply as bell ringer to get the students awake and thinking, and they really got a kick out of it.
I included the sign in two formats: one colored, one black and white.
