The Olympics: Lesson Plan

Leave a comment

So the summer is meant to be here already in the UK, and the Olympics are just round the corner.  What better way to celebrate the Olympics with a lesson plan that introduces all sorts of interesting and fun facts about the Olympics.  This lesson plan allows teachers the opportunity to develop a “reading-relay” or dictation exercise, review vocabulary and sports related to Olympic Summer and Winter Sports as well as provide learners the opportunity for a fun and enjoyable sports quiz in the theme of “Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?”.  All necessary documents for the lesson are below.  Should you have any questions, please leave a comment below.  I hope that you and your learners enjoy the material developed.  If you wish to receive a copy of the documents, please let me know and I would be able to email them to you.
