Olympic Games fever! Apps, games and ideas


With the London 2012 Olympic Games about to start, I could not escape Olympics fever. So I decided to collect some useful resources for the classroom.

Games
Word Hurdles is a simple sports vocabulary recognition game.


Ball or not? is a classification vocabulary game


Sports Mixer is a simple game in which you have to dress the character for a specific sport


Sports Maze is a simple listening game to recognize names of sports


Things for Sports is a game in which you have to identify sports equipment for different sports.


Quizzes



Project ideas





Visuals











Videos and animations
London 2012 education programme has a collection of very interesting short videos 


How often do you play sports? is a video of kids talking about sports. There are related worksheets to download.


Athletics is an animated text and quiz about the sport


The First Marathon is an animated short story with an accompanying worksheet





Other resources







I am sure you will find interesting ways to use these materials! Enjoy the Olympics!
