- You will need a world map, rulers, and string for this activity.
- Instruct your students to find the distance between the city where you live and Sydney, Australia, the site of the 2000 summer Olympiad. They can measure the distance with the string and then measure the string, or they can just use the rulers - whichever they prefer.
- Post a list of cities/nations form around the world, and have them find the distance from each of these cities to Sydney.
- They should then list the cities in order from the closest to Sydney to the furthest away. They can estimate the time it took for competitors from each location to get to the Olympic games.
