2014 World Cup Soccer Unit Study Resources

I've managed to leave this a little late and the FIFA World Cup starts in a few days, but as they say better late than never.  Here are some resources I discovered online today when looking for resources about the soccer world cup.

Did you know that the first World Cup Soccer tournament was held in Uruguay on the 13th of July 1930 with 13 teams from around the world. Uruguay was also the first nation to win the World Cup.

The original cup (Jules Rimet Trophy) was stolen and not recovered and the current cup was commissioned in 1974. The World Cup is 36.5 cm tall,  is made of  5 Kg of 18 carat gold and weights 6.175 kg. There has been some speculation about which parts of it are solid gold.  You can watch an interesting YouTube clip about it here: Chemistry of the World Cup Trophy

Although this video clip is from the South African World Cup I wanted to finish up with it because it's so much fun to watch: Animals Playing Soccer.

If you have any recommended resources for studying the Soccer World Cup OR Brazil please add them to the link up below.
