Since the Olympics happen every 2 years, 2014 is time for the Winter Olympics. This year they are being hosted by Russia in the city of Sochi, on the Black Sea. I have taught about the Summer Olympics, so I thought this would be a great way to teach about the Winter Olympics. I know that our family will be watching as much coverage as we can on the Winter Olympics, so my new Winter Olympics Pack 2014 is a great resource to teach Beck and Elizabeth about what the Winter Olympics are. I have also decided to offer this pack for FREE.
In this 100+ page pack there are a lot of activities for your PreK through 6th grade child or student. All elements focus on something related to the Olympics, the hosting city/country, or the sporting events themselves. Included are some of the following educational elements:
