You have been employed to write a spectator's pamphlet explaining how one Olympic sport is played.
Create a pamphlet that includes information about the equipment needed by the athletes, where the sport is played, what athletes do when competing and some important rules of the sport. You might include some background about the origins of the sport and its history as part of the Olympic games.
Write some questions to focus and guide your research. For example:
- What equipment is needed for ______?
- Which venue is used for the sport at this 2016 Olympics?
- Other questions will begin with Who? When? How many? Why?
You should also search for other websites about your chosen sport. Enter the name of the sport into a search engine. Books and other items may be available and useful in a library.
Use data charts
Use data charts to organize your inquiry
kidcyber data charts will help organize your inquiry. Collect some from your teacher. Or rule up some of your own like the example below.
As you research, make notes about key facts, and include sketches, that will help answer and illustrate each question.
REMEMBER: don’t copy sentences from the texts. This is not allowed and is called plagiarism.
Start a first draft
When you think you have enough information, start writing your text for the pamphlet making up your own sentences. Arrange the sentences in a satisfactory order.
Don't forget to check your spelling. Have your teacher check your first draft before you start the on the final draft for the pamphlet. (You might ask other students or adults to proof read your draft and suggest changes or additions too!)
A pamphlet is usually one sheet of paper. Yours can be A4 size and folded any way you like. Both sides of the paper are used for text.
Find suitable small illustrations, or do your own drawings, to help explain and illustrate your text.
Copies of the completed pamphlet will be shared with classmates who will listen while you talk briefly about the sport. (Don't just read it!)
They should be invited to comment on how well your pamphlet has explained the sport.

You choose a pamphlet-making program to complete the brochure online. Both Microsoft Word and Apples pages program have templates for brochures.
On one section of your pamphlet you must list the resources you used to answer your questions. You need to note the names of the sources of your information when you use them.
One way to do it is like this:
Sydenham & Thomas. 2016. How to play a sport. [Online] www.kidcyber.com.au
After your presentation, think about how you went in this project. Collect a self-evaluation sheet from your teacher and rate how you think you did.
