Winter Olympics 2014 Unit Study Resources

It feels like the other day that we enjoyed meeting the Australian Summer Olympic Champions at Federation Square and studying the Summer Olympics .  This year it's time to take a look at the Winter Olympics.

The very first Winter Olympics was held in Chamonix, France in 1924.  This event is held every four years. The 2014 Winter Olympic Games host city was selected on the 4th of July 2007 and is Sochi, in Russia.  There will be 98 events in 15 winter sports.

"The most important thing in the Olympic Games is not to win but to take part, just as the most important thing in life is not the triumph, but the struggle. The essential thing is not to have conquered, but to have fought well." Olympic Creed

Winter Olympics Resources Round-Up Have you found any good resources to use to teach about the upcoming 2014 Winter Olympics ?? For more resources the Schoolhouse Review Crew (15 January 2014)  are sharing their favourite resources for the Winter Olympics


"The practice of sport is a human right. Every individual must have the possibility of practicing sport, without discrimination of any kind and in the Olympic spirit, which requires mutual understanding with a spirit of friendship, solidarity and fair play." –Olympic Charter


  1. I've got to pin this for later because we just started the Amanda Bennett Olympics 2014 unit study, and some of these resources are going to go great with it! Thanks!

  2. We found a few of the same links. ;-) I bookmarked your YouTube links though - thanks for those. Just as a "by the way" - I lived in Calgary and attended several events during the 1988 Olympics. I was even part of the mass choir in the Opening Ceremonies.

  3. I love the winter Olympics. It's always my favorite time to study the Olympics in general, but the winter games are fun to watch.


I love to hear from you so please leave your comments below ♥
