olympics

The Olympics are in full swing now in South Korea and we have some fun links for you to explore. Are you looking for some books to read on the Olympics? Want to meet Team USA? Interested in South Korea’s geography and culture? Feeling crafty?

The Olympics offer many opportunities to learn about different cultures, languages, geography, and more. It is also a time to witness the whole world coming together. The dedication and talent of the athletes, as well as the interviews and stories that are shared about their journeys, are some of the most inspiring stories you will ever hear.

Here is a list of questions you may want to ask your learners during the Olympics:
What country do they live in?
What continent is that on?
What are the typical foods grown and created in that region?
What languages are spoken there?
What does their country’s flag look like?

Here is a list of activities you may want to do with your learners during the Olympics:
Watch the games together as a family.
Create your own version of the winter sports at home.
Make flags of the different countries and put them on a map.
Keep track of the medal counts.
Cook a special meal together that is typical from the host country.
Learn about the Olympic Flag and what it represents.
