25 + Rugby World Cup Activities

UPDATE: This resource was created a few years ago and some information may be out of date. Therefore some activities will need to be updated. This pack includes lots of different activities connected to the Rugby World Cup that could be used in classroom lessons across most subjects. It provides literacy and numeracy challenges, plus History, Geography and Art/Design activities. They could be used as stand alone starters or plenaries and some could be extended into full lessons.
