I love watching the Olympics so I created this resource and included:

*Real-World Olympics sports challenging, differentiated Math word problems based on athletes, results, and equipment of the 2018 Olympics that cover many standards in 4th, 5th, and 6th grades (listed below) - 22 pages (15 packed with grade level problem solving content that require NO preparation for weeks of learning and include a 4 page answer key)

*Differentiation opportunities to meet all student needs and challenge Gifted and high achieving students

*Problem solving for winter sports - snowboarding, alpine skiing, figure skating, ski jumping, speed skating and bobsledding.

*Opportunity for real-world application of grade level standards including:
*four operations problem solving—adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing
*relationship between fractions, decimals, and money (and time)
*measurement units (customary and metric) —capacity, weight, length
*measurement conversions
*area and perimeter
*rounding and estimation
*attributes of 2D shapes
*powers of ten
*place value
*angles
