Personal Health Series: Sportsmanship
In this sportsmanship worksheet, students choose 1 of 3 given sports scenarios, then complete an organizer that asks: what would a good sport do, and what might happen next?
Improving Teamwork through Science Fair Projects
Embrace the science fair as a way for learners to use the scientific method while improving their cooperative learning skills.
Engineering Air Traffic
Students work as air traffic controllers to read the radar and land 3 planes safely. In this engineering lesson, students use what they have learned about the principles and engineering and radar to land 3 planes then evaluate the current ATC system.
Opening a Special Ed Class
This is not just a lesson, it's a life saver! Here are 10 separate documents intended to assist a new Special Ed teacher. There are 4 different games, instructional tips, ways to handle documentation, behavioral modification suggestions, and tips on how to modify school curriculum to meet your student's special needs. A must have cheat sheet.
New Kids in The Hall
Students assess the role of statistics in determining those athletes chosen to be inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame. They work in small groups to calculate, chart, and graph various statistics for different Hall of Fame members.
Hot Problem Solving
Students follow the steps of the engineering design process to meet the challenge of getting their entire class from one location on the playground to the sidewalk without touching the ground between. The class develops a well thought-out plan while following the steps of the engineering design process. Finally, they test their solution by going outside and trying it out.
Give Binary a Try!
Students apply binary code in software applications for computer engineers. In this binary code instructional activity, students read about binary code and its applications to computer engineers. They download software and read an online binary clock. Advanced students may build a binary clock from a kit.
Students design and construct a pipeline to carry a ping pong ball and a golf ball across the classroom. In this engineering design lesson, students learn to work as a team as they plan, build, and evaluate their pipelines.
Students design and build an irrigation system that can move water from one place to another. In this engineering lesson, students test whether their system can move two cups of water to at least three feet from the source. They evaluate and make changes when necessary.
CSI Interdisciplinary Projects
Work across content areas with an engaging project that highlights higher-level thinking, teamwork, and a STEM focus.
Brain Breaks to Liven Up the School Day!
Short brain breaks increase engagement and encourage teamwork in elementary, middle school, and even high school classrooms.
Skill 17: Work in Teams
Working in teams is an important academic and career skill. Here, the class works in groups to come to a consensus on a hypothetical proposal for a revised code of conduct. This resource also describes a teambuilding activity: the human knot game. Lastly, individuals write down a plan for continuing to develop this skill.
Relationships in Space
Students analyze people, body parts, or objects and how they relate to one another in a spatial relationship. In this spatial relationship lesson, students complete warm-ups about spatial relationships and through puzzle shapes demonstrate prepositional relationships.
Challenge your learners to cross a piranha-infested river. Actually, it's just the gym floor, and they are trying to get from point A to point B, but the story makes it a more interesting challenge. Each group has two mats a given distance apart. They will start on one mat and use stepping stones (wooden blocks) to get across to the other mat. Each group gets a certain amount of blocks and they must use teamwork and strategy to get across. Of course, the distance between mats should be adjusted according to the age level of your class.
Steal the Treasure (Soccer Style)
Soccer players will be running around practicing their dribbling skills without even thinking about what they are doing. As they are dribbling to their Hula-Hoop, they will be honing their ball-control skills to keep other players from stealing the ball from them. This is a high-action game and players will need to use teamwork and cooperation to prevail as winners.
Ship the Chip
Students design a container to send a single potato chip through the mail undamaged. In this engineering lesson, students plan to ship a chip and design their own container. Students research manufacturing engineering and packaging of products in this hands-on lesson.
Too Many Types Of Titles
Direct instruction on punctuation rules for titles is followed by collaborative practice in class. Two worksheets with aesthetically engaging graphic design provide practice. For 12 examples, small groups either underline, italicize, or add quotation marks to the titles of short and long works. Finally, groups or partners complete four sentences by adding titles and appropriately punctuating these titles.
Capture the Lion
Capture the Lion is an adaptation of the much-loved game - Capture the Flag. This game could be adapted and called capture the: lion, seal, dog, cat, cow. You get the idea. The one big adaptation made in this version is that the captured player has to have other players surround her/him and make animal sounds in order to be rescued. Pick your own adaptation and go for it.
Jump Rope Replay
Learners inspect physical education by participating in a relay race. In this jump rope lesson plan, students identify the techniques to skipping rope and discuss the heart benefits which occur from a repeated exercise. Learners collaborate in small groups and practice running a relay race while continuing to jump their rope while they race.
Sports and Science
Using footballs, basketballs, tennis balls, and more, learners conduct experiments to illustrate Newton's Laws of Motion. The experiments are conducted outside, and require them to throw, kick, and hit a variety of balls. Your class will love this exploration.
