I found some more materials to use for this lesson today. They’re great supplements and vocabulary. There’s many printables to choose from.
All of the following come from About.com:Homeschooling. First, there’s many printables here that cover Summer Olympics vocabulary with a word search, crossword puzzle, activities, theme paper and more. There are printable for the Olympic sports of archery, fencing, basketball, baseball, athletics and badminton. There also printables for aquatic sports like diving, swimming, and water polo. Each of these sports has at least 5 pages of activities. The site will also be updating with more sports all the way up until the Summer Olympics begin. I recommend that you check the site to keep updated with the new sports printables. However, I’ll also keep my blog updated with the new ones on a regular basis.
You’ll find an Olympic scrapbook cover, Olympic medals and Olympic rings lined paper at ABCTeach.com, along with other materials. They have a black & white or color printable Certificate of Olympic Achievement as well. For several coloring activities and other printables, you’ll want to check the site out.
For China related material, ActivityVillage has an Introduction to China as well as a China flag coloring page. There’s also a blank outline map, map with borders or labeled map of China. You’ll also find fun printables like the Chinese zodiac chart or zodiac poster, a Chinese calligraphy number poster, and 4 sets of Chinese calligraphy character cards and games.
