STEM in Sports Spheros Lesson Plan

During my Movement Education course, this lesson was designed for a group of third grade students to combine movement and an understanding of STEM concepts. The objective of the lesson was for the students to use a program called Sphero, which teaches students how to code in order to control a robot ball, to play a game of bowling. The students were able to explore how changing speed, distance, angle, and time affects the ability to knock down pins in a game of bowling. The students really enjoyed being able to collaborate with their peers and challenge themselves to knock down as many pins as possible!
