Go for Olympic Gold The Winter Olympics begin on February 9 in PyeongChang, South Korea, and families will gather around the TV to watch their favorite athletes compete for the gold. Kids and adults alike are amazed and thrilled as they watch the grace and strength of the figure skaters, the force and velocity of the luge, and the agility and boldness of skiing and snowboarding competitions. The Olympics is a great opportunity for sharing some good old-fashioned patriotism and rooting together for favorites — plus you can slip in some other lessons, too. •

Help your kids understand the amount of time, effort and discipline involved in training for the Olympics, which will give them a whole new appreciation for these amazing athletes.

Have a computer nearby to research favorite athletes. Keep a map handy so you can locate their hometowns. Try out some foreign foods or read up about local traditions.

Soohorang, the mascot of the PyeongChang 2018 Olympic Winter Games, took its motif from the white tiger.

Visit olympic.org/pyeongchang-2018 to learn about the events and the Olympic mascot.

Talk about how the Olympics started in ancient Greece.

Stretch your own legs by setting up competitions at home — low-tech hula hooping, races, tumbling and obstacle courses or maybe Super Mario Winter Olympics for the Wii.

Last, but not least, brush up on your South Korean history.
