Another resource! Students can create their entire Venn diagram with Education World's editable Venn diagram. They simply type in each field of the Venn diagram form and save to create and print a comparative diagram.
In this activity, students work in the library or online to learn about the Olympic Games of ancient and modern times. How are the games similar? How are they different? What do they have in common? Students use a Venn format to create a diagram showing the similarities and differences. The students write information specific to the ancient Olympic Games in Section A of the diagram (the part of the left circle that does not intersect with the other circle). They write information specific to today's games Section B of the diagram (the part of the right circle that does not intersect with the other circle). They write information that is common to both in the area where the two circles intersect/overlap.
Following are some online resources students might use as they learn about the Olympic Games:
