Olympics Research

This is a post written with my Grade 1 class after we worked together to research two of their inquiry questions:

We had lots of questions about the Olympics.  Here are some of our questions and answers. 

What are the circles on fire that we saw in the video?  
They are the Olympic rings on fire.

 What are the Olympic rings?
They are a symbol for the Olympics.  A symbol is something that stands for something else or makes us think of something else. 

They are black, blue, red, green and yellow rings that are attached.
There are 5 rings to show 5 different parts of the world that people come from.
The rings are attached because all of the countries come together for a big celebration called the Olympics.
The ring colors are for every country’s flag.

We used websites to find these answers:
