Olympics issues (womendrugsthe environment) on The British Olympic Foundation site (www.easynet.net teamgbeducationmodern.asp), The British Olympic Association (www.olympics.org.uk) and The British Paralympic Association (www.paralympics.org.uk). Run an "Olympic Citizen" competition.

If medals could be awarded to British citizens, who should get gold? Nominate a famous person from history or today, and present reasons and evidence for your choice. Have a judging panel to award medals and prizes to nominators (include pupils). Organise a Mock Parliament Debate on an "Olympics amp; politics" motion: ("This house believes that the Olympics should never be used for political ends.") Research the websites for exclusionboycotting in the the Olympics. The Citizenship Foundation (www.citfou.org.uk) has supporting ideas on Youth Parliament Competition.
