Get involved in the 2022 Commonwealth Games straight from your classroom!Daniela Schiavo
28 July – 8 August
Class activity for upper primary and secondary students
The Commonwealth Games are an excellent display of commitment, perseverance and sacrifice.
The time and effort that athletes put into perfecting their craft is admirable, and we can learn a lot from our favourite sportsperson or team.
Research your favourite athlete, and make a poster or presentation about how that person displays the good habits of commitment, perserverance and sacrifice.
Then, write five ways you can use the same good habits in your life.
It can be related to anything in your life, not just sports.
Research your favourite sportsperson or team, and write a speech from their perspective; sharing their story and addressing the good habits needed for success in sports.
Think about how these habits also benefit everyday life, and give advice to your audience based on what you have learned.
