What are the Commonwealth Games?

In this unit, the students will investigate the Commonwealth Games. They will begin the unit by becoming familiar with the Commonwealth. They will work on research questions in small groups, designed to have the students learn about the history, composition and function of the Commonwealth. The students will then research the history of the Commonwealth Games and create a timeline of where the games have been held in the past. They will select one of the previous Commonwealth games and present a brief speech to their classmates about these games. The students will then research Games results over the past few years and discuss the correlation between results and the hosting countries. They will write an exposition based on the topic “It is an advantage to host the Commonwealth Games.” In the last learning sequence, they will identify the Australian team participating in the Commonwealth Games. They will choose a sport in which an Australian is competing and will research information about the sport including its origin, rules, equipment, diagram of field, track or court used, timing, information about a present competitor, Australian champions of the past and records. The students could present this information as a Power point presentation.  Finally, the students will view a Commonwealth Games event in which an Australian is participating. They will design a set of interview questions to ask this athlete after competing in the event and then will conduct a mock interview with a partner.

N.B. This is an existing unit which has been modified for the 2014 Commonwealth games.
