Olympic athletes

You need:
  1. scissors
  2. glue
  3. white drawing paper A1 size
  4. cardboard in Olympic colors
  5. compasses
Start this lesson with the symbol of the Olympics: the colored rings. What do these rings mean? What colors do they have? How are they placed together? Ask one or two children to take the position of an athlete. What is the position of the legs, arms and body? Ask another student to show another position and discuss it again.
This is a group work for five students. Every group gets a big white sheet, five sheets of colored cardboard (in the colors of the rings: black, yellow, red, blue and green) and at least five copies of the athlete.
Step one: each group member cuts an Olympic ring, using compasses and scissors. Paste this five rings on the big white sheet. Look carefully which ring has to be pasted in front or back, and which ones have to be pasted through each other. Be sure the little cutting line is pasted underneath another ring.

  Step two: Every student takes a copy of the body and cuts every part of it. Then these bodyparts have to be pasted around, in, behind and in front of the Olympic rings.

  1. Sorry, not understanding how you got the people on the paper? and why 5 papers? maybe your post got cut off?
    Coming from Vancouver Island in BC, we're all about Olympics! I'm looking forward to trying a similar project here! Thanks!

  2. I'm sorry Megan, my English isn't that good I suppose. I changed the explanation a bit, hopefully it's better now? Five papers in different colours for the rings, and five copies of the body, because you work in groups of five students.

  3. Thank you so much for this post. I want to let you know that I posted a link to your blog in Creative Busy Bee Craft Inspirations, under the Page 4 post on Aug. 18, 2012. Thanks again.
