Winter Games Ideas and Resources

Are you looking forward to watching the winter games that are happening February 4th through the 20th? These can be a great opportunity to learn about geography, math, sports, competition, international affairs, and so much more.

Winter Games Geography

You can focus your entire school day around the events or simply add in a few activities. A few years ago we printed out a world map and sat down to watch the opening ceremonies.

As each country came through we would find the country on our map and color it in.  This was a simple but fun way to incorporate some geography. You could also learn about the flags of the different countries using coloring pages or a fun sticker book.

Winter Games Reading

There are a a tremendous amount of books available that relate to the winter games. You could choose to focus on biographies of atheletes past or present. Another fun option is to find books about the different sports that are represented at the games.

You could also read about the historical origins and significance of the olympics. We really like Magic Tree House Hour of the Olympics for an introduction to the history of the olympics for elementary school students.

Winter Games Art

Art is always a fun way to include a hands-on component to learning. The Winter Games Chalk Pastel course from you are an artist is the perfect companion to a winter games study. These lessons are simple and easy to complete. They work for any age and only require inecpensive chalk pastels and paper to complete.

The Winter Games Course includes lessons for:

  • torch
  • bobsled
  • downhill skier
  • skate
  • hockey stick and puck
  • winter mountains
  • medals

You can even try the torch lesson for free!

Winter Games Unit Study

There are many ways to use these resources in your home school. You may decide to focus entirely on the Winter Games for a few weeks doing a unit study with all of your subjects with that theme.

You may just pick a couple of activities to complete in addition to your regular studies or something in between.

I have shared resources below that range in age primarily from preschool through middle school, though some could be adapted for high school. Feel free to share additional ideas or resources in the comments.
