Olympics and Politics: Let the Games Begin!

Let the games begin! Use political cartoons to analyze current events regarding the Olympic Games. This instructional activity includes two cartoons depicting the 2008 Beijing Olympics, background information to help with analysis, and talking points to unpack the two cartoons. Extend the activity by having pupils find political cartoon(s) of their own to share the next day. This instructional activity should be edited for grammatical errors, and could be updated to include more modern cartoons.
