Do your students know the history of the summer and winter games? This 2-part packet compares and contrasts the ancient games (originally held in Greece) to the modern games (held in various cities all over the world). Detailed background information for both the ancient and modern games is presented to students in two different reading comprehension passages. Vocabulary practice and comprehension questions in multiple-choice and open-ended formats are also included for students to use as they read about the history of the ancient and modern games.

***PERFECT to use for reading test prep, too!***

The best thing about this product is that it can be used every two years with either the summer games or winter games!

This resource is the perfect teaching supplement to use during a unit on this year’s winter games held in South Korea (February 9th-25th)!
