Teacher Notes
Organize a field day with an Olympic Theme. Instead of the shotput do a yarn ball toss. For gymnastics you can use a balance bean and have students balance a beanbag on their head and cross the beam without having the beanbag fall.

The Olympic Oath
"In the name of all competitors, I promise that we shall take part in these Olympic Games, respecting and abiding by the rules that govern them, in the true spirit of sportsmanship, for the glory of sport and the honour of our teams." And so the games begin.

"The most important thing in the Olympic Games is not to win but to take part, just as the most important thing in life is not the triumph, but the struggle. The essential thing is not to have conquered, but to have fought well."
Olympic Creed
