The Winter Olympics® always brings a level of excitement to everyone and for most individuals, getting to an olympic event will be challenging. This resource will give your students foundational vocabulary and information on PyeongChang, the location of the 2018 Winter Olympics®! Students will learn 10 facts about the area, events, medals, transportation, tickets, and more in a take home readable book.
In addition to the book, I have included: vocabulary/word wall words with sporting icons, synonym cards, context clue/vocabulary cards, information on each of the sports, noun/verb sort with vocabulary related to the games, venn diagram to compare different winter sports, context clue/vocabulary cards and answer sheet, graphic organizer and writing task. I have also included You Tube video links for all sports for students to watch.
Experiences that cannot be learned by attending or participating can be learned through resources like this one. This will help provide great conversational starters as the Winter Games® are occurring.
