The Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia provide a once, every 4 year, opportunity to learn about the Winter Olympic sports and Olympic champions. In this unit, you will find highly motivating activities that your students will talk about the rest of the year. They will research, experiment and design as they learn about this year’s Winter Games. They will begin with an online scavenger hunt to get to know more about the Olympic and also about Sochi. Then they will participate in 3 Olympic challenges. These competitions involve bobsledding, curling and ski jumping. You will bring the spirit of Olympic competion to your classroom. Detailed plans and explanations accompany the student activity sheets. There is also an activity for kids to get to know this year’s Olympic Champions. This activity would be perfect for a bulletin board or a class book.
