What are the Olympic Games?

In this unit, the students will investigate both the Ancient and Modern Olympics.  The students will complete a reading task to gain basic information about the Ancient Olympics. They will choose a sport which was competed in during the Ancient Olympics and will investigate how it was played. The students will read stories about athletes and will write a recount as if they were a journalist who had watched a particular Ancient Olympic event. The students will then be introduced to information about the Modern Olympics by playing a “Modern Olympic Trivia” game. They will investigate and then create a matrix showing the differences between the Ancient and Modern Olympics. They will focus on the differences in stadiums and will design and make an Olympic stadium for a specific sport for the future. The students will then discuss what they think the Olympic spirit is. They will investigate cancellations and disruptions to the Olympic Games over time and will create a timeline showing these. The students will discuss the effect they think terrorism will have on the games. They will write a discussion based on the topic, “The modern Olympics were established in 1896. They were established to help promote world peace and friendship and to promote amateur athletics. This is no longer true of the Olympic games.”  Finally the students will investigate how Australians are competing in the 2012 Olympics. They will identify the Australian team going to London. 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.
