With the Olympic Summer Games coming up in August, I am gathering some great resources for a unit study. It has always been fun to start our homeschool year off a different way – learning about the Summer Olympics! We did this four years ago. Have you considered this too? Because we need fun to ease back into a homeschool routine, I chose summer games coloring books!
Besides checking out a huge stack of books at the library, this year we are using the wonderfully frugal Dover coloring books with sports and summer games themes. They are simply fun.
~Don’t miss the discount code plus the giveaway at the end!! We received this stack of summer games coloring books from Dover Publications in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are our own and we are so excited about the summer stretching ahead and a stack of coloring books for all! Please see our disclosure policy.
Summer Games Coloring Books
If you think of all the events that are held at the Summer Olympics, you will see that Dover Publications has a wonderful collection that would match Olympics learning. Not only can you study the sports of the Olympics but you can plan some learning on the human body plus talk about and consider the dedication it takes to become an Olympian.
