We did Olympic Sports at our school. Not the real ones, just little fun ones. My favorite ones were the Little red Wagon Luge and Side Step. The other Olympic activities were Discus Throw, Plane Toss, Straw Javelin, Cotton Ball Toss, High Jump and Giant Step. The reason I liked the little Red Wagon Luge is because one person gets into the wagon . The other person pulls the wagon when the teacher says go. There's a start and finish line. The teacher times it, so whoever gets the best time wins. The reason I also liked the side step is because you take the biggest step you can sideways and someone measures. I hope we do it again next year. ...Brittany, grade 4
For the last few days the Onekama Elementary hall was doing Winter Olympic events. There were tons of events, The Giant Step, Little Red Wagon Luge, The Side Step, The High Jump, The Cotton Ball toss, the Straw Javelin, The Discus Throw, and my favorite event, the plane toss. The class did all of them . ...David, grade 4

The Olympic spirit is when somebody wins and you’re happy for them, and you go and congratulate them. You just try your best and even though you didn’t win, you’re happy. …Jarrod, First Grade

One event was the Giant step. It was fun but I didn't win. It was fun because we had our friends to support us when we did it. Another event was the Paper Airplane toss. In that event I almost won.
