The  Beijing Olympics begin in 26 days!  The official site has education resources concerning records, Hall of Fame, the Olympic Movement and more. Check del.icio.us for more links.

We begin school the Monday before the start of the Olympics and I am planning a book display to entice our students to read about the commitment, challenge, and history behind the Olympic Games.  I will also pull books concerning China (especially apropos for the 7th graders who study China this year) for check out during orientations.  In the fiction area, I will pull books by Chinese-American authors like Laurence Yep, Lisa Yee, Adeline Yen Mah, and Lensey Namioka.

How will you incorporate the Olympics in your school’s media center?
