Activity 1: For all Olympic opening and closing ceremonies, the athletes from each country must wear a special uniform. The uniforms change each year. Look at the 3 pictures posted below. They are pictures of the uniforms that our New Zealand Olympic teams wore in 2012, 2008 and 2004. For this activity, you are asked to rank the uniforms from best (#1) to worst (#3). On your blog post your rankings and provide a brief explanation of why you ranked the uniforms in that order.
- New Zealand Team Uniform – London Olympics 2012
- New Zealand Team Uniform – Beijing Olympics 2008
- New Zealand Olympic Team Uniform – Athens Olympics 2004
The #1 uniform for me was the uniform from 2012. I say this because it was nice to see that the girls got to wear dresses and the men looked respectably dressed. It also looked a lot tidier than the other 2. My #2 uniform is the 2004 uniforms. This is because I like that they put the fern on their uniform, but they also don’t look as tidy as the 2012 one. My #3 uniform is the 2008. This is because this one didn’t look as good as the 2 other ones. It just looked very plain.
