Finding out about Olympism: The pictograms
Educational kit on the Olympic pictograms.
Olympic pictograms were first used in 1964 at the Tokyo Olympic Games. In order to be understood by people from all over the world and communicate beyond words, the Japanese developed this universal language.
Ever since then, at each edition of the Games, these graphic symbols have been used to represent the various events on the programme and all the other services offered to spectators.
The Olympic Games have therefore played a major role in helping to spread the use of these pictorial signs, which have become omnipresent in our daily lives.
This kit includes:

- Turnkey activities for 6 to 10-year-olds and for 11 to 15-year-olds
