Learning From the Past

The big idea for this lesson is that the past enriches our present and future. Learners explore the origin of the Olympic Games and how one man took an event from the past and reinvented it for modern times. They compare and contrast the ancient Olympic Games to modern Olympic Games and role-play as a committee looking to change the Games as they are now.
