Rio Olympics 2016 themed numeracy activities
A great resource to get learners excited about Rio 2016!

The resource includes 6 Rio summer Olympics theme activities:
- perimeter and area
- division
- reading tables
-word search (for early finishers)
-suggested teaching strategies

This resource has been thoroughly designed so no extra prep or specialized ability is needed! It can form a standalone literacy lesson or can be left as a cover lesson.

Can be easily adapted to suit other lessons you may have already planned.

This lesson should be accessible to Year 4 - lower Year 8.

Worksheets provide a challenge for more able students (Year 4).

Some questions rely on assumed Olympic event knowledge so please read the teaching notes.

All measurements are in meters to align with Olympic events (i.e. 100m, 10km athletic events etc.)
