This curriculum has lessons for 3rd, 4th and 5th graders as well as another set of lessons for 6th, 7th and 8th grade students that is aligned to Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), and/or Common Core State Standards (CCSS) and/or National Standards for K-12 Physical Education.

About the STEM Soccer Grades 3-5 & 6-8 Curriculum

Our STEM Soccer program has the perfect touch and trappings to create a robust supplemental curriculum that juggles between classroom-style teaching as well as on-the-pitch learning opportunities. There are no penalties for learning this way because we use soccer as our real-life application.

Crossing the spectrum of the sport, the STEM Soccer supplemental curriculum touches and tackles several different lessons throughout the eight-module program and features:

  • The importance of properly inflated soccer balls and how molecules respond inside the ball
  • Learning how active play and burning calories correlates
  • The Engineering Design Process as students create their own goal line technology
  • Calculating the probability of penalty kicks. Students will be able to predict the number of penalty kicks by using a model from collected data

It is our goal to make your students critical thinkers, better problem solvers and skilled collaborators. The STEM Soccer program will do just that and explain the science that is behind the world’s most popular game. This program will provide an invaluable assist so that students can lap the field with their STEM literacy and future career paths.
