Would be great if this could be edited now the olympics are over so that it is just put them in alphabetical order. I know some kids who this would really engage as they love countries.

Hi Graeme,

Thanks for your comment and your feedback.

We based this resource according to the official Rio 2016 website https://www.rio2016.com/en/countries. As you will see, this site lists Great Britain as the country represented at the Olympics under the Union Jack. We decided to use this information to keep resources aligned with the International Olympic Committee (IOC).

Great idea with adding individual flags! We have included a spare box on the worksheet for your students to write and draw their own flag. The updated version is available to download now.

Kind regards,

great resource but can I respectfully make two points? a) It’s the United Kingdom, not Great Britain but pleased to see you changed it from England. My Scottish grandfather would have thrown a haggis at you! b) Any chance of being able to add a flag into a spare space. In my case New Zealand but I’m sure teachers in other countries would appreciate being able to add their own country or that of their pupils.
