Getting Geared Up for The 2012 Summer Olympics!

Happy Summer!

As the 2012 Summer Olympics are getting closer, we here at Sunrise Learning Lab have been working at gathering various Olympics-themed resources.

Put together an Olympics-themed Pinterest board and have started to do some background reading so that the boys will have a better understanding of the history of the Summer Olympics games.
Have also been compiling resources on London, since they are this summer's host city.

One of our favorite resources so far has been a wonderful over sized book, The Olympics: A History of the Games by William Oscar Johnson. This book is on loan to us. We are very appreciative to have it for this summer, so that we can read and learn about Olympic history. It is a wonderful book, full of photos and great historical information.

In addition to reading and doing some Olympics-themed arts and crafts, we plan to also do our own version of some of the Summer Olympic Games.
The boys plan to invite some friends over for a fun filled Olympics-themed play date.
We also plan to watch many of the Summer Olympic Games as a family.

Speaking of winning, will you also please take a minute to check out the boys' Crash Me Please Entry and please leave a comment!
Maybe you have some neat ideas for an outdoor classroom and play area that you would like to share! We are in 1st place for total number of comments and in 3rd place for total number of page views.
Just as at the Olympics, all those who go are going for the gold...the boys are hoping that their entry will be golden!

Do you have any Summer Olympics-themed plans?

Would love it if you would please share your plans with us!

Please leave your links in the comments section and I will add them to my Pinterest Summer Olympics board.
