Winter Olympic Shidonni Lesson

Picture 15

What it is: The Winter Olympics is here!  There is so much learning to be done.  In my computer lab, my students will be completing the following assignment using Shidonni and various Olympic websites for research.  I have created a Weebly site as a research landing page for students.


Please leave a comment and share how you are using the Winter Olympics 2010 as a learning event in your classroom.

  1. I love this project! The kids must really love researching this at the same time it’s happening in real life.

  2. I created a collaborative project with several participation options. We have 38 classes in five countries registered. Check out the website to view our gallery (still a work in progress).

  3. Hi Nicole, see the lesson extension section, we are doing this as part of your collaborative project. My students are so excited about it. We are participating in project #3 :o)

  4. Judith, Weebly is an easy way to make websites quickly. I also usually use either Weebly or Wix with students to create their own websites.

  5. Right now the students are still working out the lesson. When we are finished, we will be collecting the pages that the students created and posting as a slide show, I will embed it here.

  6. Our students used the Olympics to work on researching facts, paraphrasing, and creating a bibliography of websites they visited for facts and photos. They published a poster on one USA Olympic athlete using Comic Life. Thanks for all the great links!! We used http://www.NBColympics.com the most.

  7. Kelly,
    Great use of Issuu on that clean looking lesson plan on the Olympics! I had students just this week begging for a lesson about the Olympics – no joke! This Tuesday during computer lab, I’m going to set them loose on your Weebly (which I’ve never knew about until now- thanks!). Thanks for the resource.

  8. Have fun! My kids will just be starting the lesson next week, too. I am excited to do it with them, I think they are going to love it.
