The 2016 Olympic and Paralympic Games begin on 5th August in Rio de Janiero, Brazil.

The resource includes the following activities:

1. investigating the numbers behind the Olympics, by comparing countries’ Olympic rankings with other        development-related scores;

2. investigating the geography of the Olympics and Paralympics;

3. exploring sport and global values;

4. shorter activity suggestions.
