The Summer Olympic games are more than just a spectator sport. As athletes from around the world gear up to compete on a global stage in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil this summer, Aug. 5 – 21, Teachers Media International will be sharing innovative ways to bring the Olympics to your classroom.
Figuratively speaking, of course.
The games provide a unique opportunity to tie in subject matter—Maths, Geography, History, Biology, and more!—and help students understand why the Olympics remain the most-watched multi-day sporting event in the world.
Join Teachers Media International throughout June and July as we provide unique tips and strategies for including “sport” into your weekly lesson plans for a truly cross-curriculum experience. From story starters that incorporate the history, character, and successes of the games, and statistics and number problems put in the form of math brainteasers to interesting facts that will surprise you and your students, check back with us every Wednesday and Friday for ideas to get you through to the end of the school year.
Have some of your own Olympic ideas and ideas you’d be willing to share? Comment below or email us direct at firstname.lastname@example.org.
See you this Wednesday!
