For 18 days this February, the world will convene in Sochi, Russia for the 2014 Olympic Winter Games. After an historic performance on home soil at the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games, Canada goes in to Sochi looking to repeat their first-place finish. Canada’s 14 gold medals in Vancouver broke the record for the most gold medals won by a nation at the Olympic Winter Games. With the Canadian Olympic School Program’s GO CANADA Bulletin Board and My Podium Pages student workbook, you can bring the action and excitement all the way from Sochi to your classroom!
GO CANADA Bulletin Board
The GO CANADA Bulletin Board is meant to generate excitement about the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in your classroom. The bulletin board is composed of interactive elements that will help you and your students track the progress of Canadian Olympians as they live their Olympic dream in Sochi.
Students can share in the excitement of the Winter Olympic Games with their classmates in school and their family and friends at home, learn about sports and athletes, and gain a positive view of participating in sport.
The GO CANADA Bulletin Board is composed of a banner, a fan display, and a medal tracker. Each element can be used as a stand-alone, or combined with the others to create the full GO CANADA Bulletin Board. Both coloured and black-and-white versions of each element are also available, providing your class the opportunity to colour and decorate the bulletin board to their liking.
