NEW OLYMPIC PROJECT PACKS FOR MIDDLE AND SECONDARY SCHOOL STUDENTS!

In the newly released winter version of Standing Clean (Language Arts, Drama, Media) students are placed on the Canadian Olympic Team’s communication staff, and asked to respond to the world when a Canadian athlete loses gold to an athlete caught for doping.

Destination Vancouver/Whistler (middle school social studies), allows your students to research and design a youth travel tour to the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games.

Road to Recovery (secondary life sciences and physical education) requires that students use their understanding of secondary biology to help injured athletes recover in time to ‘go for gold.’ To view all Olympic Project Packs, click here.
