STEM Sports® is now offering a free supplemental curriculum lesson called Playing with Precision. The premise: when you give a child a ball and ask them to throw it, their first reaction is to throw it as far and as hard as they can. But what about precision? In this hands-on lesson, students learn about energy transfer, accuracy and, of course, precision, as they try to get a “ball” into a bucket or at a target. This lesson is a great example of the types of modules included in our current inventory of supplemental curriculum.
Playing with Precision aligns with Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), making it perfect to implement in the classroom or after-school program. While having fun, students will also begin to learn about the Engineering Design Process (EDP) through trial and error.
The lesson is easily implemented at any grade and skill level. STEM Sports® has created a 3rd to 5th grade lesson plan as well as a 6th to 8th grade lesson. Each of these separate curricula teaches the same core concepts, and they are presented in a way that is going to make students in each of these grade categories successful in learning the stated concept and objectives, precisely!
