This HUGE five file (110 page) unit covers EVERYTHING Summer Olympics related from greek history to London 2012! Check out the preview file for a sample. The files include a 45 slide interactive Power Point. Some of the things covered are:

Ancient Olympics
The Flag and Olympic Rings
Olympic Torch
Olympic Medals

and much, much more!
The unit also includes a Reading Challenge Race!
What a great opportunity to use the Summer Olympics as a reading incentive! Start them off in Athens and have them read, read, read their way to Marathon just like the ancient Greeks! The packet contains 22 pages of everything you will need including directions, bulletin board art, fun road signs, and a great certificate for when they accomplish their goal!
Also included is a 27 page Summer Olympic themed math and ELA packet that covers such topics as addition and subtraction word problems, basic facts for addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division, 2 different Math word problem sheets, and two digit subtraction, multiplication, and division worksheets for Math. Spelling and ELA Summer Olympics word puzzles (crossword, word search, and more) AND one great Summer Olympics story with questions, coloring page, and a writing prompt!!
Finally the last two files are great activities for your students. The first is a 9 page Summer Olympics Glyph and Data Analysis project that’s a great way for students to collect and then analyze data. Included in this packet are all the worksheets, templates, and directions you will need. and the second is a neat Olympic Torch craftivity, where the students make their own olympic torch. Everything is included!
Bring the London 2012 Olympics right into your classroom!

Students will love the vibrant graphics and pictures and the great custom animations. There is a red, white, and blue theme but it doesn’t mention the United States and would be great taught in any country!
