Winter Olympics: Free Resources and Activities

I'm so excited about the Winter Olympics starting this week. I have been busy trying to put together some great free resources for you. Since the Olympics last for 17 days you will have lots of opportunities to include some fun activities for your students. I just uploaded my new Winter Olympic packet. It is designed to teach students about the Traditions and Symbols of the Olympics, 7 Winter Olympic Events, and Scott Hamilton who was a Gold Medal Figure Skating Champion, through Reading and Writing Activities.
If you download the Preview file you will get a free Winter Olympic Scavenger Hunt to get students motivated about the games. Just click on the picture above or below.
To get lots of up to date information about the events, athletes, mascots, and more visit the official Sochi Olympic website by clicking on the image below.
Another great website for free resources and activities is Scholastic. Just click on the the image below.
You can find some fun crafts at No Time for Flashcards by clicking on the image below.
Education World is another great site with free resources and ideas. Just click below to check it out.

If you are looking for free lessons then Teacher First is a great place to look. Just click HERE

I also have a freebie for all of my followers and viewers. It includes a Reading Text about the city of  Sochi and the 3 Mascots of the 2014 Olympic Games. Then students will find Proper Nouns, Adjectives, and Plural Nouns from the text and write them on their recording sheet. Just click on the picture below to download your free activity.
Hope you enjoy the Winter Olympics and find some great resources and activities to do with your students.
Thanks for all you do to make a difference for your students.
