It won't be long before your students are talking about the 2014 Winter Games. Take a break from the common core and have some fun this winter by hosting your own winter olympics at school. This packet contains 7 physical activities that simulate real events in the winter olympics. Your students will love trying their hand at curling, luge, or the 4 man bobsled among others.
You can even incorporate other academic areas into this unit. Perhaps you could learn geography and assign students to a certain country or practice math by graphing medals or adding up point totals. Options are endless!
Each activity comes with materials list and directions for implementation. All materials are common to any school and there is nothing unique or hard to find.
I use these same activities in preK-12 grades while hosting my own winter olympics every 4 years in my physical education classes. It is one of my students favorite and most memorable activities. Also, makes a great indoor recess option for kids during the winter months.
