Virtual Olympic Tour and Activities

The Olympics have been held all over the world. Below you will find a Google My Map that has been created with place marks in the locations of many of the Olympic games. The placemarks include links to really cool facts and information about the Olympic Games. Use the small icon on the top left to pop out a menu for the map or expand it full screen using the icon on the top right. Zoom in super close on the map to see what you can find!

You can create your own map in Google My Maps by going to www.google.com/maps/d/ or by creating a “NEW” map in Google Drive. Watch the video to the right for a quick tutorial on making a map from Google Drive

After your trip around the world learning about the Olympics, try out these games to test your knowledge! Go for gold!
