Have you ever seen the Opening Ceremony for an Olympic Games on television? If so, you will probably realise it’s one of the most exciting, memorable and entertaining aspects of the Games, with fireworks, laser shows and amazing dances and other whiz-bang performances.

However, it is the traditional rituals associated with each Opening Ceremony that add that special and powerful feeling to the Olympics - the raising of the Olympic flag, the parade of athletes nation by nation and of course, the arrival of the torch and lighting of the Olympic flame in the cauldron.

This unit, including information sheets and student activities will help you find out more.
