Origin of the Modern Summer Games

Where did the Olympic Summer Games originate? The class takes a look at ancient origins of modern Olympic games. They research the Olympics and write a compare and contrast essay that describes how the Olympic Games have changed since ancient times. They also create a time-line that traces Olympic events, tools, and technology that has shaped the way the games have been played.
