My kids are so excited for the Olympics this summer!

summerolympicsI have such great memories of watching the Olympics with my family during the summer. It was so exciting to follow the young Olympians as they progress through the events. The opening and closing ceremony was always a family affair. We would always make fun snacks or order pizza to watch the show!

The Olympics are August 5-21st. There are still a few weeks to do some fun unit studies and activities to learn about the Olympics before you watch them with your kids!
