There are some discussions already in the community from the past that look at student activities for the classroom making connections to Olympic Games. With the start of the Summer Olympics in London this week, I thought we could post additional classroom activities and resources in this discussion. I found two resources that look very interesting:
London 2012 Olympics goal is to inspire children and young people across the UK and around the world. Find out how we are doing that with education.
The Science of Summer Olympics: Engineering in Sports (includes educational video clips)
How do you plan to include the Summer Olympics in your curriculum? Please share your resources and activities.
We just started school so I have not seen any activities directly tied to the Olympics but I have seen a couple of our teachers use the theme for Accelerated Reader. They are using gold, silver and gold for 6 weeks reading goals. I wonder if any Physical Education teacher is incorporating the Olympics....now that would be cool...anyone seen any signs of the Olympics in their school?
