Destination Vancouver

Lesson description

During the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games, our nation witnessed a Canadian Olympic Team that was first-class, not just in gold medals, but in character. Canadians everywhere witnessed the incredible stories of perseverance, courage, respect, leadership, friendship and inclusion. Our athletes were driven by their values and their commitment, and their unrelenting quest for excellence through the friendship of sport. This is the legacy of Vancouver 2010 and it will forever be ingrained in Canadians’ hearts and minds. To honour the legacy of the Games, bring the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games to the classroom.
