The free teaching resources below include a poster that includes information about the Commonwealth Games and a question sheet linked to it. The printables can be used in the classroom in some of the following ways:

  • Share the information poster with your class by displaying is on a large display (e.g. an interactive whiteboard). Use it as a teaching resource to help children to learn about the Commonwealth Games.
  • Ask your children to think of questions that they could ask to find out more about the Commonwealth Games. Can they also research the answers?
  • Print the poster and question sheets and ask children to complete them independently as part of a class or homework activity.
  • Ask your pupils to create their own set of questions linked to the information poster. Could they challenge a friend to answer them?
  • Discuss how the Commonwealth Games have changed since the first event in 1930. Can your children predict what the Games might be like in the future?
