Let the Games Begin!

This week has been extremely busy, I'm so thankful it's Friday!

Today, we started our Winter Olympics Unit! The Winter Olympics only comes every 4 years so my students are so excited to learn about each of the winter sports in the Olympics.  First, I showed them a powerpoint that introduced each of the games.  Then we watched a short you-tube video of each game.
       
 
After the powerpoint presentation we made a graph on our favorite sport in the Winter Olympics and then we made a Winter Athletes Glyph.  



My students had so much fun doing Around the Room with this theme.  Once they found each word they Rainbow Wrote each word.

I loved seeing how excited my students were with these math and literacy stations with the different sports in the winter!



  I didn't get a chance to take a picture, but after they put the puzzle pieces together, they used a flap-book in their journals to record their answers. 

Here are some of the math stations.




 

You can find these stations and Glyph in my Winter Games Unit.
