Olympics: Week 1

I love the Olympics! I am always amazed by the determination, skill and humbling stories from the athletes all over the world. So naturally we will spend the next few weeks celebrating physical fitness, games, and the olympic values (friendship, unity, respect, courage, excellence, determination).

We had to paint some olympic rings!

We watched a youtube video about the olympic torch and about some of the torch bearers. Then we made our own.

We watched a few minutes of the cross country equestrian race at the Greenwich Park stadium, and a few clips of riders who couldn't stay on their horses. Then we set up our own obstacle course.

Medal stand!
