With the start of a new busy term, casual relief teachers will be in demand as we are in the Winter months here in Australia.  One of the hot topics or units of work that will be on the go in many schools around the world will be the Rio Olympics and Paralympics, so that you don’t feel unprepared, I have put together a bundle of ideas and links for you to explore and perhaps share with some of the schools that you will be working at in Term 3.

The Olympics and Paralympics are engaging and authentic themes that can be incorporated across all of the KLAs.  I realised, when I was thinking about this article that our current HSC students were probably newborns when the Sydney Olympics were hosted in 2000!!!!
