And the gold medal goes to…Tim and Moby!
We’ve freshly updated our Olympics movie for 2012, which comes complete with a POPquiz, FYI, and Activities, and we’ve made it free for July and August.
In the movie, Tim and Moby introduce you to the history and traditions of the Olympic Games and talk about the start of the modern games. You’ll learn how and where the Olympics began, including what the first event was, and what the winner took home (hint: it wasn’t a gold medal)!
You’ll discover why the games were abolished for a time, when and why they were revived, and when women were first allowed to participate.
See how the Olympics promote peace and harmony among nations, and learn just what those rings on the flag symbolise.
You’ll also learn about origin of the Olympic torch and its world journey to a new host-city every four years.
Now, where is it headed for this year again? It must have slipped our minds
