Using CultureGrams to Enhance Your Olympic Experience

 I am obsessed with the Olympics. Since the London Olympics began last week, I have been glued to the TV and the internet, trying to keep track of everything and everyone. I’m sure many of you can relate.

As the Games progress, I always become curious about the personal lives of the athletes and their backgrounds and invariably their home countries. I’ve already used CultureGrams to learn more about the countries of the athletes competing.

The Olympics can be a great way to spark interest in the countries of the world, their cultures, and their relationships with each other, and CultureGrams can help satisfy that curiosity. In our Teaching Activities section, we have Olympic-themed classroom activities and lessons to help students and teachers alike turn interest in the Olympics to an educational experience. Check them out.

Do you have any classroom or lesson ideas that focus on the Olympics? Share them!
