  2. Introduction Student Page With the Olympic games coming and going, have you ever taken the time to think where they began? Who was the first Olympic champion? Has it always been a battle of countries? I want you to hop in your time machine and go back to ancient times in order to discover where the contest originated from.

  3. The Task Student Page During your blast to the past there is some information that you must gather. You must discover the who, what, when, where, and why of the ancient Greek Olympic games. Keep in mind you will be gathering information to educate your fellow classmates on the games. This will be done using a Prezi presentation telling us about the information you gathered during your trip. Also, you will be required to write a 1-2 page reflection about what you have learned. You will have two weeks to complete this assignment. Title Introduction Task Process Evaluation Conclusion Credits

  4. The Process Student Page • Firstyou will search and discover the “Who” aspect of the ancient Olympics. During your journey look for who is competing in the games. Who is watching the games? What about the people organizing and running and judging the games? • Second you will search and discover the “What” aspect of the ancient Olympics. Many different points could be focused on for this aspect of the journey. What events took place? What were the rules to these events? What were the spoils of victory and the consequences of defeat? • Third you will search and discover the “When” aspect of the ancient Olympics. Find out when the very first games were held. How often were the held? Were there any extended gaps between games? During what time of year did the games take place? • Next you will search and discover the “Where” aspect of the ancient Olympics. Where were the olympics held? Why were they held here? Did any other places host games? • Then you will search and discover the “Why” aspect of the ancient Olympics. There are a couple different directions you can take with this part of the project. Uncover why the athletes were driven to train so hard to compete in the games. Discover the reasoning behind why the games were held. Find out why the athletes agreed to compete in the events. Why the gods were honored during the games? Why the athletes competed naked? • You will then create a Prezi presentation that you will present to the class covering the information you found on your journey. • Finally you will compose a 1-2 page reflection covering what you have learned and what you think about the ancient Olympics after your trip. • The 5 sites listed below will act as your tour guide through the past. Be sure to explore these sites thouroughly to get the most out of your experience. • 1. http://www.penn.museum/sites/olympics/olympicathletes.shtml • 2. http://www.olympic.org/ancient-olympic-games?tab=history • 3. http://www.olympia-greece.org/contests.html • 4. http://www.ancient.eu.com/Olympic_Games/ • 5. http://www.greecetaxi.gr/Index/OlympiaHistory.html Title Introduction Task Process Evaluation Conclusion Credits
