Olympics 2018!

We enjoyed the Olympics in Room 122. There is something special about being able to experience the Olympics alongside our students who have never seen an Olympics before. We provided opportunities for our learners to share their expertise and learn about various winter sports.

Our 'Olympic Centre' aka the area our learners could spend learning about the various winter sports. This provided many natural writing opportunities for them to share wonders, learning and excitement through drawings and words.

Our learners had many different wonders about the various sports. Thanks to CBC Kids, we were able to watch many great videos teaching us about each of the Olympic sports.

"I wonder what you do with them (the Olympic rings)?
"I wonder why it's (the rings) connecting together?"- S.F
"I wonder why there is blue, yellow, red, black, and green?"- E.M.
"I wonder why you have to wear white skates when you figure skate?"- L.G.
"I wonder if they (figure skaters) get dizzy?"- S.A.
"I wonder why you have a hockey stick to score?"- J.C.
"I wonder if you win do you get a trophy?- A.H.
"I wonder why they push the broom in front?"- B.K. (about curling)
"I wonder why they have to put the thing (curling rock) on super close to the button?"- A.B

We competed in our own Room 122 Olympics using many of our math skills to determine length, proximity and time.

We were so impressed with all of the Canadian athletes. Looking forward to the next Olympics!
