This 107-slide PowerPoint includes everything you need to teach your students about the upcoming 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, South Korea. The highly engaging ppt starts out with discussion questions about why the Olympics are important and then moves on to general information about the games in PyeongChang such as the location of the city; its weather, why countries want to host the games, some consequences of hosting, and why these games are particularly important. There is also general info like when the Olympics start, the number of participating countries, which sports are played, etc. I discuss what makes these Games unique, and go over important features about PyeongChang. After the general information, I give a basic introduction to each of the 15 sports with information such as basic rules, the events included, medal hopefuls, past medal winners, and U.S. athletes competing in the events. There is also a link to a separate YouTube video for each of the 15 sports with some sports having more than one. I've included extra fun facts about uniforms, the torch, medals, suggested books/movies about the Olympics, and more! I've been using these slides and videos as a way of introducing my students to the different sports they can see. They love it! This PowerPoint is a great way to get your kids pumped about the Olympics and is completely editable to meet your individual classroom needs. Throughout the presentation, I have left teacher notes for extra ideas and ways I've used the information. This is everything you'll need to introduce your class to the 2018 PyeongChang Olympics. It's a great value for everything that's included, and I promise you'll be pleased with your purchase!
*Please note that the Olympic trials are still being held for many events and the "people to watch" for each event slides will be updated as more athletes qualify for Team USA. I will send a notification to all buyers with any major updates so that you may re-download.
