Winter Sports Activities for the Classroom


The National Endowment for the Humanities is a government website that has a nice write up about the first modern Olympics. 

What is super interesting is that you can also find first-hand reports from years of Olympic events through over 5 million digitized pages of U.S. historical newspapers.

Fascinating!

Students will need to use classroom resources or conduct their own research.

---------------------------------------------

For a list of all the winter sports played in the Olympics, visit the official Olympics website HERE.

For example, if students wanted to learn more about curling, they could find the definition, equipment needed, the latest news, and featured athletes.

If your students have a new inspiration to play some winter sports, they may play online.  Don't worry, you can make it educational as well.

For example, your students could play a ski jumping game HERE.


Activity Ideas:

1. Research ski jumping. When did it begin in competition? How do the athletes train? How fast to they go? How are they judged.

2. Create math word problems using ski jumping stats.

3.  Research and conduct experiments on how snow is made.

4. Engineer your own miniature ski (car) jump. Who can make the car go the farthest?

5. Plan an online game with ski jumping. When you are finished, write a creative story about your adventures. Add details to make it more real and interesting.
