Our Great Summer Olympic activities look at eight different sporting events including: Artistic Gymnastics, Baseball, Boxing, Cycling, Diving, Sailing, Swimming, and Triathlon.
Students study information about the sporting events as they read the content in newspaper column format. Students practise using a variety of reading, writing, research, and language arts skills as they complete the exciting activities. Included are optional activities that provide teachers with flexibility. The two major projects are “Summer Olympic Games Research Scavenger Hunt” and “Promote an Olympic Sport”. This Sports lesson provides a teacher and student section with a variety of reading passages, activities, crossword, word search and answer key to create a well-rounded lesson plan.
