The Olympics in your classroom

It is official, the 2014 Olympic games have started and I fully admit to being one of the millions watching the different events this weekend. I'm forever amazed by the talent and perseverance of these athletes. Not to mention their accomplishments at their ages! I've also found it interesting to see more about the history of the games and the culture of Russia.

How can this all be translated into the classroom? Brittany of On Our Minds @Scholastic has a great round up of resources I wanted to be sure to share with everyone. Check it out here and see articles, book lists and more! Plus, on there is a feature on "The Science of the Olympics."

Teachers, how are you integrating the Olympics into your lessons?
