Thanks for the links!  I'll take a look at them.  I checked out some books about the Olympics from the library and we are going through them this week to get ready for the Olympics.

Thanks for the links. I looked at the teacher created resource one and it looks good. I found some neat stuff on ethemes.com. Not good at putting it into an email type thing but they have lots of neat stuff.

Hi Mary,

I can't remember how to do a link...but these are cute Olympic paper dolls at makingfriends.com/sports_crafts.htm     I did a big search the other night so we can do lapbooks.  The kids have made up their own Opening Ceremony Dance and are planning their events for a mini Olympics!  We will put the pictures in their books.

I will try to list more of what I found if you want them.  Blessings, Carrie
