As it turns out, my first class presentation occurred back in 2010, shortly after my The Olympic Torch Relay By the Numbers was published in the January 2010 edition of Kayak magazine (a Canadian History Magazine for children). 

The presentation was for my daughter's grade two class, a bunch of rambunctious boys and girls who were more eager to participate in Olympic sports than talk about them. 

In the course of my presentation, I  not only talked about the Olympic Torch Relay and the 2010 Olympics, I managed to tie in some math skills when we talked about how many people had carried the modern Olympic flame since it began oh so many years ago. The children were especially excited to talk about their favorite sports, and also to learn about the process of being published in the magazine. 

Over the years, I have had the pleasure of doing several different presentations for elementary school students. I'll be sharing more of those in future blog posts.
