Suggestions for effective blog posts
(We will be taking the best submissions and using them for events and interviews at Canada Olympic House in Sochi!)
i) Make your posts visually appealing! Encourage your students or children to also include drawings and/or pictures if they wish to write letters.
ii) The more content, the better! Have your class or family create individual letters, drawings, etc. as well a group photo or video.
iii) Consider making use of our Canadian Olympic School Program resources for your posts, available at Olympic.ca/education! Show us your class or family’s creative take on the GO CANADA Bulletin Board (available at olympic.ca/resources/sochi-2014-class-resources/) or our Olympic decorations (olympic.ca/resources/olympic-decorations/).
