Do you have the worksheets/templates for the crafts activities?

Olympic Lesson Plan - Comparatives and Superlatives
« Reply #6 on: August 08, 2012, 02:33:04 PM »
The lesson fits nicely into a 90 minute slot, and can be varied by adding or subtracting events.
I have had great feedback from the students every time I have done this class (10+ times)

The power point file is fairly self explanatory, but here is the gist:

The class begins with talking about the Olympics, where they were, where they are now (time sensitive), and when they will be in Korea.
Hand out the Olympic workbook to the students, and they write down some winter and summer sports as you go through the powerpoint.
The next slide mentions the Paralympics, and different events, and different disabilities.  This was just talked about - so there are no descriptions in the file.  At this point, use the phrases ' harder than' and 'easier than', to introduce the grammar points.
Next, there is an example of comparatives and Superlatives, that needs some in depth explaining, but the students usually picked up on it quite easily.
At this point, the students can complete the chart on the back of the Olympic workbook.

Then the Student's Olympics begin!
(There are some funny videos linked in the file - but due to time issues, they were not shown until the end).

You will need various items for the events. Here is a list of what is in this file-
Event 1 -chopsticks, timer, something for the students to move from one container to another (we used markers, and the students had to carry them with the chopsticks from one desk to another across the room)

Event 2- sticky note paper, and a wall with flat access so students can jump and stick their note.

Event 3- Coins, and a target line on the floor.

Event 4- slides provided.
This event was to outline dyslexia. A brief explanation of what dyslexia is, and what it does was given, and the students had to read the sentences correctly, and were timed. (These sentences were taken from the Grade 6 text book that I use at my school)
If you choose not to introduce the Paralympics and/or disabilities you can just call this event a word scramble.

Event 5- the results sheets provided in this file.

Points are awarded according to place-up to Event 4, and Event 5 equals 2 points per correct sentence.  First one done gets 3 points, 2nd gets 2 points and 3rd gets 1 point.

Total up the points, and award your gold medals!

This file was made from bits and pieces I have downloaded from waygook.org - so THANK YOU so much to all contributors to this site!  I hope this gives back at least some of the benefits I have received from this site!

Be the change you want to see in the world.

Another Olympic Game Idea for Elementary
« Reply #7 on: August 16, 2012, 11:50:13 AM »
I've been playing this game with my AfterSchool students this week.

Divide class into 3 teams. I only did this because I have three columns of desks.
After going through book and modeling the target language for them (through action/drama is how I do it), start game.
One person from each team stands up.
Place something on their head (like a little magnet, chalk, ball of paper, cloth, whatever is hard to keep on their head).
Ring a bell or blow a whistle to start and say a phrase from today's learnin'.
They do a loop (or two) around their column of desks, go to the whiteboard, and write the phrase on the whiteboard.
If they drop whatever is on their head they have to go back to the beginning and start the loop again.
Usually the person with the flatest head wins ;).

1st person to finish gets 3 pts for their team.
2nd person gets 2 pts.
3rd gets nothing.

I usually get about 10 runs in, it's fun.

End the class with a closing ceremony where they stand at differing levels while you place an imaginary medal around their necks and listen to 10 seconds of their country's anthem. Don't allow them to choose Korea as their country, makes it more interesting and less chaotic. Turkey was the winner in my last class, crushed USA and China. Make it a rely to switch it up, kids will have a blast if they're anything like mine.

Thanks for the material. I looked at the quiz and I noticed a mistake in question 2 "What do the colours of the Olympic rings signify?". The *number* of rings signifies the continents but the *colours* were chosen because at least one of those colours can be found in every flag of the nations competing. A bit pedantic but my students would pick up on the awkward wording of the question. If your answer is "the continents" then the colours have nothing to do with it and it should be "What does the number of rings signify?".

Olympics PPT
40 minute class period

Play as many or as few games, depending on your class size.
We learned and sang "We are the Champions," crazy frog version (easily found on YouTube).

PPT goes like this:
Rules
Players' Entrance
Players' Oath
Games
Presentation of Medals

You can skip to games under time constraints.

Games
Javelin Throw: throw straws into cups (or plastic pumpkins, whatever you have)
Rugby: race backwards to pick up a milk carton on the other side of the room.
Boxing: find the textbook page while wearing oven mitts (or other cumbersome gloves)
Archery: spin 10x and race to high five the teacher first.
Swimming: blow up as many balloons as possible in 1 minute
Judo: pop as many balloons as possible in 30 seconds - no hands or feet allowed
Curling: try to flick the magnet into a circle
Basketball: shoe flip (instructions in Korean on the PPT)

I did not make this PPT; it was a homeroom PPT my Korean co-teacher had that I translated.
I've done a few Olympics games lessons and this was by far my favorite.

We played 4 teams of 6 students and we never made it past Judo.
