You know the history of the Olympic Games, now find out about the different sports. Work with a partner to research information about an Olympic sport of your choice. Why not learn about a different sport that you’ve never tried?
Go to www.london2012.com and click on ‘sports’. Choose from the list, then click on ‘About the sport’ and read the information/watch the video.
Then, prepare a short presentation of your sport in order to share the information with the class. Make sure you have information about:
– the basics (essential rules and how to play)
– the keys to success (what you need to win!)
You can print pictures if your sport is relatively unknown.
