Instructional Ideas

  • Create an interdisciplinary unit to use as many ideas as possible in a connected curriculum
  • Differentiate the activities depending on grade and skill level by extending research options
  • Encourage individuals to watch this year's Super Bowl and note relevant facts, events, commercials, or statistics to analyze in class the day after Super Bowl Sunday
Classroom Considerations

  • Activities require a variety of settings, such as an outdoor field for measuring the speed of a football or a computer lab to use Google Earth
Pros

  • Provides creative ways to incorporate the Super Bowl into academic skills, such as analyzing team statistics, designing a nutritionally-sound party menu, and planning a virtual trip to the big game
  • Includes additional links for lists of classroom activities
Cons

  • None
