Summer Olympics 2016: Teaching Ideas

Are you teaching summer school? Headed back to school early August? Or just looking for a fun and educational way to celebrate the Summer Olympics with your own kiddos at home?  I have the PERFECT set of resources for teaching about this exciting time!

How do they pick where to have the Olympics? This information reading passage (with comprehension questions) explains all about the Road to Rio!  Have students go back and highlight text to support their answers.  Or answer the questions aloud together.

Summer Olympic Photo Op!! How cute is this chalk picture by burgh baby?

The printables below cover inferencing, math and vocabulary skills! The All About the Summer Olympics page would be a great cumulative activity! On Summer Olympics Sports Match Up, students read the 3 clues and match the picture of the summer Olympic sport (not shown).

There are so many important Olympic symbols.  In this reading passage, students will learn all about how the Olympic torch makes its way to the opening ceremony!

Your kiddos can enjoy a fun "torch" snack while reading all about it!
