GC2018 Embrace Learning
How are you embracing the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games (GC2018) at home and at school?
A suite of rich, exciting and real-world learning experiences which use GC2018 as a context, is available at the GC2018 Embrace Learning website.
Part of the official GC2018 education program, delivered by the Queensland Department of Education, the resources are aligned to the Australian Curriculum and available across all learning areas and year levels.
This is a great way to explore the cultures, sports, nations and territories of the Commonwealth. Test your knowledge with interactive quizzes, design your own baton for the Queen's Baton Relay, and complete the online obstacle course.
There are more than 40 activities to choose from, with new resources regularly published in the lead up to the Games, so stay tuned!
