Olympics

 

Are you gearing up for the Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia?

We are so excited to watch some of our favorite sporting events! We are in the process of organizing a mini-unit study that we can work on during the Winter Olympics.

The basis of our mini-unit study is the Winter Olympics 2014 Lapbook with Study Guide.

This 3-folder lapbook includes 58 pages of hands-on learning.

Folder 1 covers the history of the Olympics.

Folder 2 covers the 2014 Olympics- dates, symbols, logo. mascots, winter games, Russia, a Winter Olympics word search, and more.

Folder 3 includes a booklet for every event in the Olympics. Within each book, we will log which country wins the Gold Medal!

You can see a sample here.
