Are you enjoying the Winter Olympics?

We are enjoying watching some of our favorite competitions while working on a hands-on lapbook project! You can read about our mini-unit study in our O is for Olympics post.

Our daughter is using The Winter Olympics 2014 Lapbook with Study Guide to learn about the history of the Olympics, history and geography of Russia, and track the winners of the sporting events. This lapbook is a 3 folder project and includes 58 pages.

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!

Our daughter is 11 years old and working at the middle school level. She enjoys the creativity of lapbooking and notebooking as she studies thematic topics such as the Winter Olympics. Lapbooks are tactile projects which are suitable to all ages.
