We are starting the Olympics 2012 unit study tomorrow!

I know several of you bought the study and the lapbook when I mentioned it a couple weeks ago, so I just wanted to remind you that the four week study is designed to start tomorrow and finish when the Olympics end!

I’ve put together some resources, filled out my planner with each day’s activities, and I’m giddy about starting!

Have I mentioned I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Olympics?!

I also wanted to share a few extra resources we will be using to enhance the unit study in case you are interested in them…

Heads UP! {Sports Devotions for All-Star Kids}

These devotions are in perfect format for your athlete:

Each day’s thought includes a ‘Game Plan’ memory verse, a ‘Playbook Assignment’ Scripture reading, an ‘Instant Replay’ life application question, a ‘Sports Stuff’ segment with practical athletic advice, and ‘On the Chalkboard’ final thoughts that bring everything together.

Sports Trivia Devotional: Inspiration for Kids from Sports and Scripture

This book includes fun facts from sports history from each day of the year along with a devotional. I like all the trivia as much as the boys do! The graphics are also a lot of fun and MANY different sports are mentioned! I think this will be a fun, lighthearted way to start each day – maybe while the boys eat breakfast!

Family members

Between grandmas and grandpas and aunts and uncles, we have several family members who have played sports that are part of the Summer Olympics {the sports, not the family members}! We will be calling or Skyping with them to learn more about those sports throughout the four weeks!


You would be amazed at the number of Olympics crafts, activities, and recipes popping up all over Pinterest right now! I have board called Olympic Awesomeness where I have been {and will continue to} collect project ideas! Let me know if you have an Olympic-themed project you want “pinned!”

If you haven’t bought your Olympics 2012 unit study, you’re not too late! Once you purchase it, a handy email with your download will show up in your inbox right away and you’ll be all ready to start tomorrow! Don’t forget to get your free lapbook to go along with it as well!

Let the games – and the study – begin!
