ENGAGE: Both science and science teaching begin with asking questions (science) and defining problems (engineering) that need to be answered or solved about some observed phenomenon or system (e.g., “I wonder what, where, when, how, or why?”). Students’ prior knowledge is accessed and interest engaged in the phenomenon.
Teachers, both units in the Speedometry™ Curriculum are designed using the 5E Model (Engage, Explore, Explain, Elaborate and Evaluate) to support students as they ask questions and conduct experiments to find the answers. The 5Es integrate hands-on activities that help foster conceptual understanding and inspire students to explore further. This video talks about the 5E Model, and we have follow-up videos on each of the elements for Speedometry™ Units 1 and 2.
Speedometry™ is a 2-unit standards-based curriculum designed to engage 4th grade students in learning STEM content using Hot Wheels® cars and track. The content is aligned to the Common Core Standards in Science and Mathematics, the Next Generation Science Standards, and California State Education Standards in STEM.
