I always enjoy the Olympics. I’ve been thinking about doing a unit study or lapbook with the kids about it, but since we haven’t finished our Ocean study, I’ve been holding back on buying anything. However, I just discovered a free one here! There are some wonderful ideas about mapping, researching an Olympian, studying nutrition, graphing a country’s medals, etc. Another great thing I hadn’t thought about was to read a biography about Eric Liddell. (And maybe watch "The Chariots of Fire." I’ll have to re-watch it to see if it’s appropriate for my kids, though.)
Now, since we don’t have cable, I’ll have to see if we can even watch the Oympics on our TV with our silly little antenna!
