CLASSROOM: From K-12, We've Got You Covered

At Edventures, our hands-on classroom products and engaging curriculum are designed by our staff of educators, with educators in mind. Being a classroom teacher has never been more demanding. Adapting STEM instruction to Common Core Standards makes teaching more complicated. Perhaps most challenging is the implementation of STEM concepts in a classroom where students have a variety of interests and a disparate capacity to learn. Our curriculum does not replace your current curriculum or add extra work for you. Rather, it is meant to enhance the topics you are already teaching with innovative, fun, and interactive, hands-on activities.

    K'NEX Roller Coaster Physics Set

    $ 280.00

    Description

    The K'NEX® Education Roller Coaster Physics Set is designed to help students as they learn how to design and conduct scientific investigations, identify variables of the problem and select appropriate independent and dependent variables for investigations. They will determine the steps necessary to control a variable, observe and record the response, and interpret the results. They will measure, record, and analyze the data for patterns, construct scatter plots or histograms as a graphic representation of the data, and mathematically interpret those graphs.

    The Teacher's Guide offers ideas, in the form of nine lab exercises, that outline ways in which students in grades 11 and 12 may use the set to study physics, and in particular mechanics. The studies adopt a hands-on, student-inquiry based approach in which the teacher is encouraged to develop each lab investigation using the 5E model (Engage, Explore, Explain, Extend, and Evaluate) of inquiry while students utilize the Four Question Strategy for experiment design.
