Have each kid pick a country to keep track of their winning medals throughout the Olympics. For our "Olympic Games Day" where we play games, each kid can represent their country, make a flag for their country, tell something they researched about their country, and we can record wins for the Game Day
You can use this medal chart to keep track of the top scoring countries (in which case you will need to print out the appropriate flags). However, we think it works better if you choose 5 or 6 "favourite" countries and track their progress through the Olympic Games.
