Why Lesson Planet?
Stage an "Orange Olympics" in the gym while completing phonics work on the vowel "o" and learning about the Olympics. This interdisciplinary unit provides practice with the vowel sound for "o" while integrating a social studies unit on the Winter Olympics and several physical education activities. Little Olympians play hockey, bowling and run relay races all with oranges. Afterward, they write about the experience using pictures from the events and computers.
