The Problem

The city of Los Angeles has entered a bid to host the Olympic Games in 2024. At each Olympics, a mascot is created that reflects the host city and the spirit of the games. If Los Angeles wins its bid, how would you go about designing the mascot for the L.A. Olympics?

How do you choose a mascot?

Students will review the mascots of previous Olympics, as well as basic tips for choosing a mascot. They will also review facts about the city of Los Angeles, and use the information to design their own mascot for the L.A. Olympics.
