Free, Engaging 2014 Winter Olympics Activities for ELL Classrooms

With the 2014 Winter Olympics rapidly approaching, teachers are gearing up for ways to integrate the excitement of the games into their English Language Learner classrooms. A colleague recently informed me of a free Winter Olympics Activity Toolkit created by VIF Learning Center that can be downloaded on their blog here. The toolkit provides engaging activities to bring global learning into the classroom. You can also upload photos and videos of students engaging in the activities onto the VIF Learning Center website to be entered into prize drawings. You can learn more information by reading their blog post here. The toolkit was developed for students in grades K-12, but activities are also relevant to older learners.

The toolkit includes a myriad of engaging, interactive activities that build skills in literacy, social studies, math, art, music, physical education, and science. Activities oriented around the paralympics are also provided. The toolkit includes a handy calendar highlighting some of the more popular events. Activity sheets and templates are also available. The activities are fun and engaging, and they can be adapted to students of all ages. Download this free resource here:
