Hodori was the official mascot of the 1988 Summer Olympic Games in Seoul, South Korea. He was designed as an amicable Amur Tiger, portraying the friendly and hospitable traditions of the Korean people, and the name Hodori was chosen from 2,295 suggestions sent in by the public. There was also a female tiger named "Hosuni", but she was seldom used.
Hodori is a derivation of horangi, the korean word for tiger. Seúl 1988

1980 Winter Olympics mascot mail away w/ Chiquita Banana
Order Monday, Monday 1980, Olympics Winter, Mail Order, Mascot Mail, Lake Placid
I remember collecting these banana stickers during the 1980 Lake Placid Winter Olympics. I had to tape them to the "collector card." If you've ever tried to reuse a sticker from a banana, you know they don't hold up too well. Maybe it was my young age, maybe I found a cartoon raccoon playing sports amusing or maybe a little of both. At any rate, I did not send away for the plush mascot. Fun fact: The mascot was named Roni after the Adirondack Mountains.

watch 2014 Winter Olympics (Sochi, Russia)
The 2014 Sochi Winter Olympic Games are here, and students likely are getting excited to watch Team USA compete. Here are some of our favorite resources that incorporate the Winter Olympics. NBC Learn NBC Learn, in partnership with the National Science Foundation has produced these 10 extremely interesting videos that explain the science behind different winter sports. For instance, students might find Shaun White The Engineering of the Half Pipe particularly engaging, plus thereare videos covering the science of ice and snow, bobsledding, and much more. This link will take you to a a huge PInterest Board with resources to study the Olympics with primary grades! Let the Games Begin!! Time For Kids has great resources, articles and even some printables about the Sochi Olympics! This resource from Montana State University was produced in 1998 for the Nagano games -- but the science lessons are still relevant for teachers and students. In fact, this package was an inspiration for NBC Learn¹s Winter Olympics learning resources. Here teachers will find interactive courses covering the physics of ice skating and the luge, as well as activities for learning about sports nutrition and physiology. Printable worksheets are available, making this a great old school (in Internet time) learning resource. The New York Times Learning Network produced these multimedia-rich lessons for the 2010 Olympic Winter Games -- but they¹re great for the 2014 Sochi Games. Here you¹ll find two tailored lessons covering a couple of the laws of physics, with links to relevant Times content and other resources. This resource from Scholastic features six unique math games for students in grades 1-5. They¹re easy to use in class and don¹t require much in terms of materials. In addition, each game features a ³Tech Twist² for fun, engaging ways to incorporate technology. This blog, from the American Society of Innovation Design inEducation (ASIDE), offers ideas for a mapping activity for students. It's just one of ASIDE¹s creative ideas for teaching about the Olympics. Also check out Designing the 2014 Sochi Brand. This is another resource from the 2010 Olympic Games in Vancouver, and it¹s packed full of great science projects and activities for students. Most of the lessons are designed for the middle grades 4-8, and they cover various winter sports, like How Fast Can You Shoot A Hockey Puck?
