If you check around online you can find some great digital activities to go with.  It’s amazing how much science is actually involved with sports.  I Can Teach My Child has a free ebook that includes Olympic Activities for kids.

This FREE eBook includes:

  • A List of Books about the Olympics
  • A Gold Medal Map Guide
  • 6 Unique Olympic Crafts
  • 6 Fun Olympic Games & Activities
  • 3 Delicious Olympic-Inspired Snacks

I also found a great page with information about What are Olympic Medals made of?  It turns out there are a lot of rules involved in the percentages, thickness and so on.
