The 2014 World Cup begins on June 12th in Brazil and is the biggest single-event sporting competition in the world and the coverage is bound to be huge. There are 32 teams from around the world participating the event. The World Cup offers a great way to integrate lessons that involve a variety of subjects from art to zoology. With the results being available daily the lessons can be updated. Since some places may not have coverage of the event I highly recommend you use the Internet to keep current.

I find that even those students who are not interested in soccer enjoy getting involved in using the variety of information interesting for math practice such as percentages, graphing, and even probabilities. They also like to make a book of the animals that represent those countries in the form of an animal atlas and design flags for their teams. The lessons can easily meet Common Core standards in math and literacy.
