    Hi Rebecca,
    Is that 2nd grade (approx. 7-8 year olds)? I was thinking about doing the same thing.
    Of course, you've probably already thought about keeping track of the medals each country wins (could be made into a graph using the country flags). Going out on the playground and measuring some of the distances of the events, then marking records, etc. is another possibility. The kids might want to pull out the Guiness Book of World Records for comparison. I was planning to ask my kids to modify some of the events for their kindergarten buddies and hold a mini-Olympics here (they'll have to be doing some creative thinking for this, as we have no snow in Phoenix, AZ!). Please post some of the ideas you're thinking of and perhaps others will add to the list. Should be fun! ;-D
