How might I use this resource with my students?

Teachers may choose to use this resource in a variety of ways. If you’re not sure where to start, you might like to try the following suggestion.

  1. Create the diaries (see instructions below) and distribute to your class several days before the Games begin. This will provide students with the opportunity to research the host country/city and to build some anticipation around the event.
  2. Each morning during the Games, take some time (10 minutes) to discuss the events of the previous day and those of the day ahead. Allow the students to complete the relevant page in the diary. If possible, allow the students to access online news sites to ensure that their information is accurate and up to date.
  3. Encourage the students to take their diaries home over the weekends so they can continue documenting the key events of the Games.

How should I print this resource?

This resource has been created as an A4 PDF to optimise your choices when compiling the diary. You may choose to include all pages, or you might like to pick and choose which pages to include… the choice is yours!

  • To create an A4 version, print the resource double-sided at true A4 size, then staple together.
  • To create an A5 version, print the resource double-sided using the ‘Booklet’ function in your printer options, then fold and staple together.
