WINTER SPORTS

This is a great month for winter sports! From February 9th - 25th, tune in to watch Olympic athletes from around the world compete in the 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, South Korea. (Read all about the 2018 Winter Olympics on pages 4 to 5).

As we enjoy the Winter Olympic games, and cheer for our favorite athletes and sports, there are some outdoor sports that you can play right at home. It’s fun to participate in winter sports like skiing, ice skating, sledding, and ice hockey. When participating in any of these fun winter sports, it is always important to use the right equipment to stay safe. For ice hockey, players need elbow pads, gloves, a helmet, visor, shin guards, shoulder pads, skates, a stick and puck. Skiing requires the right boots, gloves, goggles, helmet, poles and skis.

When you play outdoor winter sports it is also important to stay warm and dry. Be sure to wear layers of clothing and keep as much of your body covered as possible. Drink lots of water! While you may feel like you’re not thirsty, you still need to take water breaks to stay hydrated.

FRIGID FUN FACTS Ice Sports In Ice Hockey, a Face-off
is when the puck is dropped between two opposing players who face each other. Face-offs occur at the beginning of each period and after any stoppage of play.

Relaying in speed skating is similar to a runner handing off a baton to the next teammate, except in speed skating the athletes are simply given a push by their teammates when it's time to skate.

A Camel Spin in ice skating is a spin on one leg with the other leg extended parallel to the ice and the upper body pitched forward, arms extended.

The Pictograms

Pictograms of the PyeongChang Games are used to represent all of the different snow and ice sports disciplines. They have to be easy for everyone to understand, whatever language they speak. They’re handy for finding your way around the Games venues! The Pictogram designers were inspired by hangul, the Korean alphabet. They took elements from four consonants and three vowels of the Korean alphabet to create these 24 action-packed pictograms (shown below).

2 018 W i n t e r O l y m p i c s P y e o n g C h a n g Snow & Ice Seven sports, 15 disciplines – how many events?

Meet the Mascots!

The first official Olympic mascot was unveiled at the Munich Games in 1972. Since then, every Olympic Games has had its own mascot!

Their role is to embody the Olympic spirit and promote the host country throughout the world. The mascots are popular, fun, and they help to create the festive atmosphere of the Games.

Let’s find out more about the 2018 Olympic Winter Games! In the 2018 Winter Olympics, some of the world's best athletes will compete in seven sports, subdivided into 15 disciplines, for the chance to win a total of 102 gold medals. The Olympic Charter defines winter sports as “sports which are practiced on snow or ice.” Seven winter sports are officially on the Winter Olympics program: • Biathlon • Curling • Ice Hockey • Luge • Bobsleigh • Skiing • Skating

Bandabi

The Asian black bear Bandabi is the mascot of the 2018 Paralympic Games. It symbolizes courage and determination. Banda comes from the word bandal, which means “half-moon” in Korean, a reference to the white patch on its chest.

Bobsleigh, skiing and skating each include several disciplines:

Each discipline includes a number of events. In Alpine skiing, for example, athletes can compete in: • Downhill • Slalom• Super-G • Giant slalom • Alpine Combined

Soohorang

The PyeongChang 2018 mascot, called Soohorang, is a white tiger, a sacred animal and a symbol of Korea. Sooho means “protection” (of athletes, participants and spectators); rang comes from ho-rang-i, “tiger” in Korean, as well as Jeongseon Arirang, a traditional song from Angwon Province, where PyeongChang is located. Soohorang’s white coat is the color of snow.

New Events in 2018

The PyeongChang Games will showcase some new events. In snowboard, both men and women will be competing in Big Air, an event that involves boarding down a slope and jumping off some very high jumps to perform acrobatic tricks. Other new features include a mass start event for men and women in speed skating, a curling mixed doubles event, and a team Alpine skiing competition.

The Medals: Going for Gold!

The athletes competing at the Games all share the same dream: to win a gold medal. At the first modern Olympic Games in 1896, winners were awarded an olive wreath and a silver medal. Beginning in 1900, medals were produced in gold, silver and bronze. There are 102 Olympic gold medals up for grabs when you include all the men’s, women’s and mixed (both men and women) events in all the different disciplines.

Sixty Years of Observing Our Earth - By Teagan Wall, National Aeronautics and Space Administration

Satellites are a part of our everyday life. We use global

positioning system (GPS) satellites to help us find directions. Satellite television and telephones bring us entertainment, and they connect people all over the world. Weather satellites help us create forecasts, and if there’s a disaster—such as a hurricane or a large fire—they can help track what’s happening. Then, communication satellites can help us warn people in harm’s way. There are many different types of satellites. Some are smaller than a shoebox, while others are bigger than a school bus. In all, there are more than 1,000 satellites orbiting Earth. With that many always around, it can be easy to take them for granted. However, we haven’t always had these helpful eyes in the sky. The United States launched its first satellite on Jan. 31, 1958. It was called Explorer 1, and it weighed in at only about 30 pounds. This little satellite carried America’s first scientific instruments into space: temperature sensors, a microphone, radiation detectors and more. Explorer 1 sent back data for four months, but remained in orbit for more than 10 years. This small, relatively simple satellite kicked off the American space age. Now, just 60 years later, we depend on satellites every day. Through these satellites, scientists have learned all sorts of things about our planet. For example, we can now use satellites to measure the height of the land and sea with instruments called altimeters. Altimeters bounce a microwave or laser pulse off Earth and measure how long it takes to come back. Since the speed of light is known very accurately, scientists can use that measurement to calculate the height of a mountain, for example, or the changing levels of Earth’s seas.

The launch of Explorer 1 from Cape Canaveral, Florida on Jan. 31, 1958. Explorer 1 is the small section on top of the large Jupiter-C rocket that blasted it into orbit. With the launch of Explorer 1, the United States officially entered the space age. Image credit: NASA

Satellites also help us to study Earth’s atmosphere. The atmosphere is made up of layers of gases that surround Earth. Before satellites, we had very little information about these layers. However, with satellites’ view from space, NASA scientists can study how the atmosphere’s layers interact with light. This tells us which gases are in the air and how much of each gas can be found in the atmosphere. Satellites also help us learn about the clouds and small particles in the atmosphere, too. When there’s an earthquake, we can use radar in satellites to figure out how much Earth has moved during a quake. In fact, satellites allow NASA scientists to observe all kinds of changes in Earth over months, years or even decades. Satellites have also allowed us—for the first time in civilization—to have pictures of our home planet from space. Earth is big, so to take a picture of the whole thing, you need to be far away. Apollo 17 astronauts took the first photo of the whole Earth in 1972. Today, we’re able to capture new pictures of our planet many times every day. Today, many satellites are buzzing around Earth, and each one plays an important part in how we understand our planet and live life here. These satellite explorers are possible because of what we learned from our first voyage into space with Explorer 1—and the decades of hard work and scientific advances since then.

To learn more about satellites, including where they go when they grow old/wear out, check out NASA Space Place: https://spaceplace.nasa.gov/ spacecraft-graveyard. NASA Space Place encourages everyone to get excited about science and technology, with articles, activities, crafts, games, and lesson plans.

BOOK NOOK Sam and the Lucky Money

Dragon Dance: A Chinese New Year Lift-the-Flap Book

by Karen Chinn, illustrated by Cornelius Van Wright & Ying-Hwa Hu

by Joan Holub, illustrated by Benrei Huang

Sam can hardly wait to go shopping with his mom. It's Chinese New Year's day and his grandparents have given him the traditional gift of lucky money–red envelopes called leisees (lay-sees).

It's Chinese New Year and there are so many fun things to do! Shopping at the outdoor market for fresh flowers, eating New Year's dinner with the whole family, receiving red envelopes with the traditional gift of lucky money, and best of all - watching the spectacular Chinese New Year's parade! Introduce the customs of Chinese New Year to even the youngest readers with this festive lift-the-flap book.

This year Sam is finally old enough to spend it any way he chooses. Best of all, he gets to spend his lucky money in his favorite place — Chinatown! But when Sam realizes that his grandparents' gift is not enough to get the things he wants, his excitement turns to disappointment. Even though his mother reminds him that he should appreciate the gift, Sam is not convinced — until a surprise encounter with a stranger. With vivid watercolor paintings, artists Cornelius Van Wright and YingHwa Hu celebrate the sights and sounds of festive Chinatown streets. In her picture book debut, author Karen Chinn tells the inspiring story of a child who discovers that sometimes the best gifts come from the heart.

FEBRUARY 2018 Flick Picks Peter Rabbit In theaters: February 9, 2018

Early Man In theaters: February 16, 2018

Peter Rabbit, the mischievous and adventurous hero who has captivated generations of readers, now takes on the starring role of his own irreverent, contemporary comedy with attitude.

Early Man is the latest stop-motion claymation comedy animated film from Aardman Studios and Nick Park, who brought us the Wallace and Gromit movies and Chicken Run.

In this 3D live-action/CGI animated adventure comedy movie film, Peter's feud with Mr. McGregor (Domhnall Gleeson) escalates to greater heights than ever before as they rival for the affections of the warmhearted animal lover who lives next door (Rose Byrne).

Set at the dawn of time, when prehistoric creatures and woolly mammoths roamed the earth, Early Man tells the story of Dug, along with his sidekick Hognob as they unite his tribe against a mighty enemy Lord Nooth and his Bronze Age City to save their home.

James Corden voices the character of Peter with playful spirit and charm; Margot Robbie, Elizabeth Debicki, and Daisy Ridley perform the voice roles of the triplets, Flopsy, Mopsy, and Cottontail.

All-star cast includes Eddie Redmayne, Tom Hiddleston, and Maisie Williams. Rated PG (for action and language). 1 hr. 29 min. (Aardman, StudioCanal and Summit Entertainment/Lionsgate).

Rated PG (for rude humor and action) 1 hr. 29 min. (Sony Pictures Entertainment).
