It's that time again....it's time for the Winter Olympics. From February 8 - 25, 2018 our TVs will be overloaded with a wide variety of sporting events!! NBC has a full Winter Olympics page set up for us to browse through, you can also watch streaming on their page.
How can you incorporate the next few weeks into a full learning experience?
A Few Suggestions Might Be:
1. Math and Science.... Learn about the various sporting events you are watching. Research the history of the sport, how to participate in the sport, and what equipment would be used. Is there math involved? Is it just skill? What are science aspects of the sports....Follow this Science of Olympics link I discovered. Make bar graphs of Olympic medals earned by country.
Example of videos available:
2. Art - drawing the Mascot and scenes
3. Geography and Social Studies.... Where are the Olympics being held? What are some of the cultural differences that our athletes will be facing while in South Korea?
4. History .... How much do you know about South Korea and it's history?
