This project can be assigned after either the summer or winter Olympics have finished. It will take students about a week to complete if working on for one period daily. Students will be responsible for answering research questions about the Olympics (using the internet) for the first part of this project. Afterwards, students use some of the data they have collected to complete bar graph, coordinate graphing, and pie chart activities. This activity works well with math classes, as well as social studies classes.
The bonus with this project is that it can be bought once and then used following every Olympic games (winter or summer)!
