What about Olympic Games? (EN-CUR-668)
This Learning Scenario is focused on the theme of the Olympic Games. To provide a holistic approach, this Learning Scenario is underlying the history, the meaning, and the athletic festivity that Olympic Games manifest through the centuries from ancient Greece to nowadays the whole world.
Also, through this Learning Scenario, basic current elements that connect with history are shown as Olympic torches, metals, sports and elements that are a current celebration of the Olympic Games like postcards and stamps, mascots, the manifestation of Olympic in art etc. The L.S. is considered for young primary school students aged between 9 yr. and 10 yr. and can be used in the curriculum of Greek schools as part of the history, gymnastics, or art subject. By the completion of it, students would be able to recall basic historical moments of the Olympic Games, would be able to spot and understand some key elements of the current Olympic Games, present sports that are part of them and of course learn about the honour and meaning that Olympic Games still stand for.
This learning scenario has been developed during the “Digital Education with Cultural Heritage Rerun” online course. The course aimed to improve teachers’ understanding of cultural heritage in order to efficiently integrate it into their lessons and practices. The courses can be accessed here.
