In our Olympic Sport Activity Packs you’ll find everything you need to teach your students about four of the top events at this year’s winter Olympic games. Each sport contains an overview and history of the sport, featured athletes, competing countries, and a primary and secondary Authentic Learning lesson plan.
The 2014 Winter Olympics events offer the perfect opportunity to bring the excitement of the sport into your classroom and, at the same time, demonstrate the physics behind each event. With so much content related to physics and sports, we’ve recently created a resource page, entitled "The Physics of Winter Olympic Sports". You’ll discover content from AAPT journals on the physics of hockey, skating, curling, and so much more. These articles are available free for current members and subscribers.
