Tip of the Week: Sochi Winter Olympics Lesson Plans and Teaching Resources
It’s Wednesday. And Wednesday is not the normal day for a Tip of the Week. But the Sochi Winter Olympics start tomorrow and you might be looking for some instructional goodies. Here’s what I’ve got:
Start with the basics
- Official Olympic site
- Official Sochi 2014 site
- NBC Olympic site. Be sure to check out their viewing guide so that you don’t miss anything. You’ll find links to schedules, TV listings, live streaming videos, and their mobile apps.
- Find out more on the Sochi 2014 Wikipedia page.
- You can’t understand the event without the mental map. Get a quick overview with some Street View looks at Tim the Traveler’s Google Map. Better yet, go a step further with a great Google Earth file from My Reading Mapped. Just download the file, make sure Google Earth is installed, double-click the file, and you’re looking at a very cool visual complete with Wikipedia links to all the venues.
- Some early Tweets from Sochi here, here and here. (It’s not looking good.)
(I’m part of Team Apple so . . . these are iPhone / iPad apps. I did some checking – Google Play and Android also have tons.)
