Arts & Crafts, AROUND THE WORLD WEEK

Did you know that every modern Olympic Game begins with the Olympic Torch Relay? The Olympic torch is first lit in Athens, Greece and is passed from one torchbearer to another, traveling through many different countries until if finally reaches the Olympic Stadium in the hosting city. Before you create your very own Flaming Olympic Torch, here are some fun facts about the Olympic Torch:

  1. Each Olympic Games has its very own unique torch design
  2. The Olympic torch is lit by the sun’s rays
  3. The Olympic torch flame is lit a few months before the start of the Games. Some people incorrectly believe that it is the same flame from the very first Olympic games
  4. The flame represents the ancient Greek myth in which Prometheus stole the fire from the god Zeus.
