STEAM 5E Grade 4 – Lesson 1

Let's Go Bowling

Lesson Overview

This lesson follows the 5E model of instruction containing five phases of learning (Engage, Explore, Explain, Elaborate, and Evaluate). It provides a carefully planned sequence of instruction that places students at the center of learning. It encourages all students to explore, construct understanding of scientific concepts, and relate those understandings to phenomena or engineering problems.

During this STEAM lesson for Grade 4,students will gain understanding of how the speed of an object relates to its energy and how energy can be transferred resulting in motion of a stationary object. Students will work collaboratively to integrate and exhibit learning by investigating the effect of speed on the energy of a ‘car’ through its impact with different objects and materials.
