Help Kids Keep Learning During Summer Olympic Games with Free Resources 

Education.com has released a series of educational accompaniments for the 2016 Summer Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

The Summer Olympics start August 2 and continues to August 21, representing a perfect window of opportunity for students to learn in the final month before school resumes.

Education.com is taking advantage of the fun theme of the Olympic Games and has designed a series of worksheets that cover both math and reading topics while being in line with the theme of the games.

"From reading comprehension worksheets about Olympic history to converting rowing times from decimals to fractions, we've got the Summer Games covered. The Olympics is always a fun theme for kids, and covers multiple subjects at once, including language arts, math, social studies, and geography,” according to Education.com.

Worksheets, for example, include everything from themed word searches to math activities and even hands-on activities.

According to a representative of Education.com, the worksheets are teacher-chosen to ensure your child is on the right track of learning. A free workbook is included in the newly-released resources, as well. 

The materials are specifically designed for children in preschool through grade 5.
