Winter Olympics Unit Study Resources...And Free Notebooking Pages

The Olympic Winter Games begin on February 9th.. I’m so excited! I love the ice skating, skiing, and luge. I love keeping up with certain athletes and tracking which medals they win.

And of course, as a homeschool mom, I love capitalizing on the learning opportunities that the Olympics brings. Want to get some Winter Olympics-themed learning going in your homeschool? These resources will help you to learn about South Korea- host of this year’s games-, the history of the Olympics, and some of the sports that make up the Winter Games.
