STEM Multi-Sport K-2, Full Kit
The STEM Multi-Sport Grades K-2 is a fun, new, and novel way to introduce motor skills, spatial awareness, and movement patterns to students in K-2. When applicable, the lessons have been aligned to NGSS, CCSS, and the National Standards for K-12 Physical Education making this curriculum great to use in the classroom. The modules break down the science aspects of basketball, football, golf, and soccer and provide varying levels of physical activity for the youth involved. They will think they are just playing while they're also learning about:
- The behavior of a soccer ball by determining which soccer drills increase and decrease the speed of the ball.
- The performance of basketball shoes—and the students will learn about the Engineering Design Process (EDP) by designing their very own shoes.
- The Scientific Method as they play catch and find the ideal distance between players.
- The physics behind how the force of their golf swing relates to accuracy and precision using PGA-licensed ShortGolf® clubs.
