Fabulous Freebies: 5 Great Winter Olympic Lessons



With the Sochi Winter Olympics right around the corner, there are all sorts of ways to bring this current event into the classroom.  Here are a few freebies to check out:




Included in this packet by Lesson Lady are five puzzles and five creative drawing fast finisher pages with an Olympics theme. It is perfect for fast or early finishers.  And, although it was originally created in time for the summer olympics, almost all of it is general enough to be used for the winter olympics too. Check out this free packet here!





Games 4 Learning has a math brain teaser.  There are a series of brain teasers included in this free packet that are sudoku-like.  They are, obviously, olympic themed and written at different levels of difficulty to challenge a wide range of ability levels.
  




Audrums has a great compare and contrast packet for the summer and winter olympics.  There are readings, Venn diagrams and more.  It is a great way to give students an overview of the olympics while learning key differences between the winter and summer events.




Enchanted Learning has a page replete with history and printables.  There are short explanations of key Olympic traditions and images.  The collection of worksheets offer you a wide range of activities from coloring sheets to math problems to writing pages to quizzes.  






Education World has over 20 different links to lessons and informational sites about the olympics.  There are lessons to draw from for a range of content areas (sciences, health, reading, math, geography and more).

These are some of the materials I found that I thought were quality.  If you have links to freebies that you'd like to share, please do so in the comments sections.  Happy Olympic viewing and teaching.  Good luck team USA!!
