Today is the final installment of my Olympic lesson printables and sites. I do hope this has been helpful to those of you looking for materials covering this topic.
I’m going to start with About.com: Homeschooling. They have completed all the Olympic events now and have printables for all of them. The final events are wrestling, tennis, shooting and weightlifting. There’s also synchronized swimming along with one of my favorites, volleyball. Finally, there’s the triathlon and I’m including fencing because I don’t know if I remembered it in earlier posts. About.com: Family Crafts also has many great Olympic crafts to make as a famiy or homeschool and participate in your own events. There’s other great activities on About.com that could easily be worked into an Olympic lesson. You can go to About.com: Chinese Culture to find your students name in Chinese or learn some simple Chinese calligraphy or even learn about some proverbs.
I found some really good materials including lesson plans, games and other materials at the LA84 Foundation web site. There’s also an amazing set of flashcards from FlaschardPlazza. I think I’ve already mentioned it, but Teacher Vision has many good printables and you can get 3 for free without joining. Don’t forget Activity Village with their Olympic printables because they’ve added a couple new items.
Finally, there’s 2 blogs that have many links to activities for the Olympics. Some of the sites are ones that I’ve already listed, but some are new. Please check out Debbie’s Digest and Homeschooling on a Shoestring Blog, as well as the newsletter from Surfaquarium.
I hope this has helped some of my homeschool (or even teacher) blog readers. I have fun looking for the information needed to homeschool Miss K and give her the best education possible. I know many of you want the same thing, so here’s the material right at your finger tips!! As I stated earlier, this will be my last post on Olympic materials. I’ll be sharing materials on Little House, election and some of the other topics that we’ll be doing early on this school year.
Now, I’m off to do today’s lesson!!
