Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games - teacher's guides

As the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games approach, the Canadian Olympic Committee (COC) is excited to announce the launch of the 2013-2014 Canadian Olympic School Program (COSP) resources. During the month of February, Canada’s top athletes will be taking on the world. The COC encourages you to leverage the excitement surrounding the upcoming Games by making use of these resources in your classroom.
We kept track of medal wins

The COSP resources are available to download free of charge. The resources are aimed at sparking discussions about values, telling athlete stories that inspire, and encouraging students to work together to find creative solutions to suggested challenges and current issues.
Teacher's Guide

 The GO CANADA Bulletin Board provides your class with an interactive display to help you and your students follow all the action from Sochi. The My Podium Pages student journal allows each student to connect personally with the Games while critically reflecting on different components of the Olympic Winter Games schedule, activities and sport events.

This year’s program also includes expansions of the COSP’s successful past resources dealing with mental fitness, body image and physical activity. All resources feature stories, quotes and advice from Canadian Olympians to help motivate students to strive for their best in everything they do, whether it be trying out for the school play, learning a new musical instrument or playing a pick-up game of hockey with friends.
