What are the Commonwealth Games?

In this unit, the students will investigate the 2014 Commonwealth Games. They will identify when and where the Commonwealth Games will be held and locate Glasgow on a world map. They will listen to a passage about the history of the games and identify when and where the games have been held in the past. They will use this information to create a timeline. They will also create a poster advertising the 2014 Commonwealth Games. The students will become familiar with the names of the Commonwealth countries and they will complete fact files on these countries. They will brainstorm past and present Australian athletes and they will research information about an athlete of their choice. They will then work with a partner to create a mock interview with this athlete. The students will identify the events that take place at the Commonwealth Games. They will research one event and write a procedure on how to participate in this event. Each student will be given a copy of the Commonwealth Games schedule. They will then use this schedule to create a timetable for a day at the games. The students will view a Commonwealth event. They will create uniforms, medals and flags and then recreate this event, including an award ceremony.

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