Short bio's on Shaun White (snowboarding), Mikaela Shiffrin (slalom and giant slalom), Meryl Davis and Charlie White(ice dancing), and Max Aaron(figure skating) are provided for students to read and make medal predictions. Students will pick another name from a list of Olympic Athletes to research and write about (website info provided). After watching (or reading about) Olympic results in late February, students can match their predictions with actual results. Besides keeping students informed of current events, these activities provide practice in reading comprehension, making inferences, research and writing, and oral presentations. Enjoy!
