Library Olympic Games – Library Activities
This is the second part in my Library Olympics prep – my display ideas can be found under Display: Olympic Games.
This library challenge is designed so that students can engage in a competitive but inclusive challenge to inspire them to read more, read with their friends and use books to help them complete fun tasks.
Students can complete any or all tasks individually or in teams. They will earn points for their class group or school house team.
Challenge 1: Flag design
Design your own flag. It can be a personal flag or make a team and share the design. We will display the flags with the other countries’ flags bunting, from Mr Printables.
Challenge 2: Paper plane making and flying competition
Create the most aerodynamic or the most fantastic looking paper plane. Create a paper plane that can fly the highest or do the most loops. We will test the planes during lunchtime outside the front of the library.
Challenge 3: Origami making
Using the library’s origami books, create an origami piece to add to our display. Can you create one that is sports themed?
Challenge 4: Pictogram design
Design a new set of Olympic Pictograms for reading in a variety of exciting ways. Reading while lying on the beach, reading while surfing, or maybe reading while riding a horse???
