I haven’t had time to come up with any of my own activities for the Winter Olympics. But I’ve found some nice worksheets and reading cards on other sites that I thought I’d share.
I really like the materials over on Lehrmittelperlen (you must subscribe to obtain access to their materials – about $20 per year).
- Olympische Winterspiele für Erstleser
- Olympische Winterspiele 2018 has texts with comprehension questions, worksheets for the different sports, along with cards to read about each sport, and a couple of puzzles. It also includes information on the Paralympics.
- Olympische Winterspiele 2018 Miniperlen is a little workbook to create about the Olympics.
- They have other materials, too, if you search “Olympische Winterspiele”.
Other reading cards about the various sports can be found at Fächerübergreifend leicht gemacht.
KinderSuppe has a variety of materials and activities (search “Olympische Winterspiele”). You have to subscribe to obtain access to most of their materials, however they do offer some things for free:
- Olympic Rings: Print out the page to color the Olympic rings. They suggest using paint and cotton swabs to color them in! There are two versions: one with a colored dot to indicate the ring colors; one with the color word spelled in the ring.
- Summer or Winter? This activity has children sorting cards of various sports into summer and winter sport.
