Activity 1- Day 2 Weekly Activities...(Holiday Blogging)

Learn: Each time that a city hosts a Summer Olympic Games they are asked to create their own unique mascot and logo. Here are the mascots from the Summer Olympics in London, England (2012) and in Sydney, Australia (2000).

The mascots for the upcoming Summer Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro are Vinicius and Tom. They can be found on all of the advertisements for the Olympic Games and they have also been featured in a number of videos.

Click on the link below to watch one episode of the Tom and Vinicius show. After you have finished watching the video, post a summary of the episode on your blog. What do you think is happening in the video? Please make sure to include a title that tells us which episode you are summarising!

My Summary of the Video:

Title: Tom and Vinicius Episode 1

When I watched this short video it seemed as if this was the birth of the Rio Olympics. Tom and Vinicius realized icons that were in front of them and they both decided to follow it to wherever it went. They were both in different places and all of a sudden they had met up to where both of the icons met. Then they both made their way to Rio for the Olympics.

This video was amazing because they frequently showed the nature of Brazil.

  1. Hi Pat,

    I completely agree with your interpretation of the video. It was pretty amazing to see the scenery from Brazil, wasn't it? I would love to visit Rio one day. Do you have any interest in travelling to Brazil?

    I'm looking forward to checking your blog again tomorrow to see if you've had time to post any more blogs. I hope that you have!

    Cheers, Rachel

  2. Thanks and I am interested in Brazil and would be interested in going there. The scenery is beautiful.
