K-2: Soccer Words
Write down all the words that relate to soccer as you can in 5 minutes. To get started, think about what you do when you play, where it is played and who plays it.
3-5: Fan Posters
Pretend you are going to the celebration for the US Women’s Soccer team World Cup run or for Japan's win. Create a poster that shows your excitement for how well they did. It should have a message for the team or one of the players. You can decorate the poster with a theme related to your message, soccer, America, etc..
6-8: Women in Sports
Women’s sports tend to get less attention than men’s sports. Why is it important for women to participate in sports whether people pay attention or not? Do you think the US Women's team doing so well in the World Cup will help female athletes get more attention and respect?
9-12: World Cup Headline Competition
Create a headline announcing the results of the Women’s World Cup. Headlines need to be short, under 10 words, and catchy. Your goal is to grab the attention of a reader and make them want to read more. You’ll be competing with your classmates to see who can come up with the most attention-grabbing headline. It helps to use literary tools, like alliteration, rhythm or rhyme. Brainstorm relevant words, like the team name, players or any other soccer words to get started.
Once you’ve completed your headline, the teacher will select finalists and the class will vote on the winning headline.
