Learning From the Past: Origin of the Modern Summer Games

Where did our beloved Summer Games originate? Kids look for the origins of the Summer Olympics in our ancient past. They research how the Games came to be and how they have changed. They'll complete Venn diagrams to compare and contrast the Summer Games from then to now. The lesson plan culminates in an essay and timeline project.
