---NOTE--- This has the same unit activities as my SUMMER OLYMPICS RIO 2016 12 DAY UNIT, but uses a different book and comprehension questions for it. PLEASE do not buy both units, unless you want the same activities for 2 different books! You can buy the additional journal pages/comprehension questions for this book in my TPT store!

This unit, based on the 2016 Rio Summer Olympics has twelve 45-55 minute daily lessons, outlined as follows:
• Olympic Skills Activity (5-10 minutes): The first five to ten minutes of class will be spent on a quick “Olympics skill” (stretch or endurance body movement, for example) or fun informational activity about the Olympics.
• Grammar/English/Vocabulary (20-25 minutes): The focus for this section includes activities and student journal pages to build grammar and writing skills.
• Class Reading (20-25 minutes): This unit uses the book "What Are The Summer Olympics?" There are daily reading assignments for class or home reading, and comprehension questions that go along with this book.
• If you do not have the book for this unit: No worries! This unit works great as a continued web quest. I provided a list of kid-friendly search engines in the unit. Or, you can simply take out those pages in the student journal and pair this with any Olympic Study!
• There are also "Computer Learning Days" in the unit, which have students go on an Olympic Webquest to closely student this year's Summer Olympics using the official Olympics website!
• The final day is a culmination activity day, where students hold a Classroom Olympics! I have instructions on this day for inexpensive Minute-to-Win-it games, most of which use items many teachers already have in their classroom!
The best part is---LITTLE TO NO PREP FOR YOU! Lessons are explained, in detail, many down to word-for-word instruction. Great for summer camp enrichment, home school, or just a fun way to get kids excited about the Olympics!
