Olympic Learning Countdown: Olympic Quizzes for Students

With less than a week to go until the greatest show on earth in London, you might want to see what you kids know about Olympic facts, stats and history. 

I have found a few student based quizzes and trivia that you might want to do with your kids to get them in the Olympic spirit.

Funtrivia has a massive collection of different Olympic Trivia challenges.  There is something here for everyone.

Kidzworld has a great 10 question multiple choice quiz with pictures that you could do on your interactive white board.  It's pretty basic but would still challenge most elementary / primary students.

Ken's Quiz site has a great collection of different Olympic quizzes.  Many of them are visual in design looking at different flags for example.

For the diehards ther is the official London 2012 site with a multitude of quizzes for kids through to geniuses.  The great thing about this is that all the resources are very high quality and ready to go at the drop of a hat.
