Hey everyone,

I am wanting to do unit studies on the olympics and the upcoming elections.  We have been doing somethings because of the primaries and I have found a couple things on the internet. 

Anyway I was wondering if any of you had any website or book ideas that might work with either of these subjects.  I'm looking for any age.

Thanks in advance for any help!

I have the Ancient Greece and Olympics Magic Tree House Guide on my shelf.  

Also used to have this book on my shelf Olympic Advetures it had many mini books, games reproducible images that would be great for lapbooking, notebooking, unit studies.

Live and Learn Press has an election lapbook and Amanda Bennett has a unit study
