Below is a pdf copy of our TENTATIVE plan for our Winter Olympics Unit we hope to do over the next couple of weeks. Feel free to use and share as you please, keeping in mind this is in DRAFT form, so please forgive mistakes. We will use some of the resources found on http://www.enchantedlearning.com (kind of cheesy, I know, but they cover some basic info without me having to create it myself), and we will use a LOT of online resources. Some of the sites I found from my PLN on Twitter are listed below.
Let me if you use the outline or if you find any other really good resources I should have on the list.
Here’s the unit outline: Olympic Unit Outline
