    Olympic Game Day
    By teachermlb

    Clip to ScrapBook
    I start every school year with an Olympic unit. It's a great team building activity. We actually do a reading unit where we read about the ancient and modern Olympics as well as customs and traditions of the Olympics. At the end, they have a short quiz and then we have Olympic Game Day.

    Our teams are set up using the colors of the Olympic rings. I have the students randomly draw to see what team they are on. They have to create an alliterative name (ex. Black Bears) and design a team flag. I have several games like an Olympic Word Search and a-z with Olympic terms. Each team competes and the first, second, and third get medals in each event. I use the foil stickers from as the medals. It is such a FUN day!

    This year I can include something about the actual Olympics. :)
