Product Description
Capture your students' excitement about the Olympics! This product has been updated to include the Rio Olympics!

This timeline activity is a fun way to help engage your students while they learn timelines, and also to practice latitude & longitude.

This product includes four documents - timeline events, a LARGE printable timeline, 10 timeline questions, and a map to identify the latitude and longitude of historical Olympic sites. All questions include an answer key.

It is an interactive timeline - there are 16 events that can be printed on cardstock or paper, and a large paper timeline that can be spread out on the floor. Students may arrange the events on the timeline alone or with a partner - perfect for your kinesthetic learners, or as a center activity!

The timeline is fun and colorful - I printed mine in color on cardstock and laminated to use for future years.I also included a black and white version if you wish to save ink.

As an extension idea, I had students use index cards to research their own Olympic events, and add them to one copy of the timeline which was hung in the hallway.

The latitude & longitude activity has the location of 10 of the events marked on a world map. There are two options:
1 - asks students to identify the latitude / longitude (giving the city)
2 - asks students to identify the latitude / longitude and city (giving the year)
