Now that the 2018 Winter Olympics are half-way through, help your students to improve their understanding of all that's going on by showing them this interactive PowerPoint presentation. Included are links to 24 short videos that show you top athletes performing in each of the sports. Some of these videos are amazing . I totally recommend watching Steven Bradbury’s unbelievable Gold Medal win in the 2002 Olympics – it really shows the perils of Short-Track Speed Skating!
The topics covered within the presentation include:
Location and dates,
Venues and the stadiums
The emblems and mascots
The events and their pictograms.
Note that the presentation contains interactive buttons which allow you to jump to different parts of the presentation and then return. My recommendation is that you go through the presentation slide by slide until you get to the information on the venues. From here, I recommend that you select the particular sports that take your interest.
If you have a live Internet connection, then watch some of the videos – especially the ones that I’ve labelled with 5-stars.
If you like this presentation then please leave a review.
