The Grand Slam lesson comes from my Educaching® GPS STEM Curriculum for Teachers manual, which is ideal for parents/teachers that are looking to create an outdoor learning environment with geocaching lessons. The STEM lesson plans are everything you need to engage students and differentiate instruction for all learners with hands-on activities. The hunt for learning begins with Educaching.
The Educaching manual provides easy-to-follow instructions along with innovative math lessons, science lessons, and PE lessons that align with the national teaching standards. GPS and education convert the outdoors into a learning laboratory. Problem solving is at the root of all Educaching lessons and many Common Core Math standards are met for grades 4 – 8.
In the Grand Slam lesson, students will calculate mean, median, and mode using their own data by kicking a kickball. They will utilize a GPS receiver (not included) to measure distances of kicks. This lesson provides a fun way to use technology and physical education to solve real-world math problems.
