This set of writing activities (centering around the games) helps students learn how to sort and group information (Common Core). After they sort the facts, they must group them into paragraphs and give each paragraph a heading. They also have to create an illustration with a caption. There are 5 information sheets and a template/graphic organizer that can be copied to go with each sheet. Each information sheet gives facts and details about 5 different sports in the Winter Olympic games. I also included simplified information sheets for ESL or Special Ed. learners. For fun, I included some cut-outs that will helps students choose their favorite fact about the sports.
In this set you will get:
-5 information sheets about different winter sports in the Olympics like speed skating and alpine skiing.
-5 simplified half-sheets of information for ESL learners.
-1 graphic organizer for adding all the information to after grouping it.
-1 simplified graphic organizer for ESL learners.
-1 template to make a pair of Olympic glasses!
-4 cut-outs to summarize one fact about each sport.
