Going for the Gold

The Olympic Torch will be used to signal the opening on the Winter Games in Pyeongchang, South Korea on February 9.

Use the newspaper coverage of the event—both in print and online—to follow the achievements of athletes from all over the world and to inspire contemporary, relevant learning.

Graph the Results

Have your students stay on top of the excitement by asking them to graph each day’s medals throughout the two weeks of events. List all the countries down the side of a piece of paper and across the top put the medals—gold, silver and bronze. Check each day to record the winners.


Which winter sports are team games? Check the newspaper to find out. Review with your students the characteristics that make a person a valuable team member.
