Using Current Events to Teach
When these events come up (and while we are studying Christmas around the world) our flag study came in handy, but don’t forget math and science. The physics of the events and the math of between the scoring, speed, and medal counts are all worthwhile. The physics of ice skating and this post on balls will get you started.
