I have to admit, I am a huge summer Olympics fan, and really do not watch much of the winter Olympics other than the figure skating. However, the cold weather and upcoming games are getting me in a mood to celebrate this special event!
If you have read any of my posts, you know I am a HUGE fan of games or activities that can be tailored to meet multiple types of groups and age levels. Hence, a new open-ended game I want to share with you weeks before the big event so you can prep the game to use with your students!
I always like to start with information about the actual Olympics, so I thought I would use this fun facts website on Olympics written for kids: http://www.factmonster.com/ipka/A0771580.html. I plan to show it on my SmartBoard, but you could print out the facts, cut them up, and have students read the facts aloud (or answer questions about what you read if they have question/auditory processing goals). Then, a fun game to play at the same time, or after we learn about the Olympics.
