Olympics Crafts and Learning Resources
Ideas for Older Kids – Middle & High School
- Research report – study the upcoming Olympics and choose one or more people to do a report. Use our free Biography resources here to write a simple report or fill out a notebooking page. Create interview questions you would ask your subject if that were possible.
- Power point & Speech writing – Create a power point presentation and/or short speech about an Olympic event or athlete. Present to the family.
- Design, Architecture, or Teaching – Create a diorama of an Olympic location, event, or other creative idea relating to the Olympics for 2018 or in the past. Alternative ideas include designing costumes, logos, staging area, or other related items by those interested in design of most any type.
- First Olympics Research – Learn about the first Olympic celebrations and compare and contrast the differences with the Olympic celebrations today. Add information in a notebooking page and write a paragraph or two about it.
- Event Planner – Use what you have at home or at a local park to design and create your own Olympic events. They do not have to be the same as the actual Olympics. If possible – invite siblings or local kids to come and participate. Make your event as large as you want: plan opening ceremony, interviews with athletes, prizes and awards, training exercises, day-of events, award ceremonies – food, entertainment . . . even if there are no siblings or kids to participate, planning a large-scale event from start to finish is good organizational skills. Use the computer to research the Olympic events, event planning, community organizing and more! At the very least – present your plan to parents as if you are pitching your services to a company.
More Hands on Learning Ideas
- Creative Writing – write a short story about “If I were an Olympic Champion” or “I’ve always dreamed of . . . ” or other acceptable topic along those lines.
- Journalist – write or shoot a video about why the Olympics matter, what they have done for the countries which participate, or why people should be excited about the upcoming events. Report the facts, or be persuasive on your topic. My own son is researching the death rate of Olympic athletes and how it has decreased through history.
