Speedometry Hot Wheels encourages inquiry and real world, problem based learning through play and hands on lessons plans that align to the Common Core Standards as well as the Next Generation Science Standards. These play-based lessons and student activities are designed using the 5E Model (Engage, Explore, Explain, Elaborate and Evaluate) to support students in asking questions and creating experiments to determine the answers. The lessons in this sequence of hands-on activities build upon each other to develop a coherent conceptual understanding of the following: potential and kinetic energy, measurement and distance, how to represent data with charts and how to present findings from research projects. Students will learn in collaborative learning groups to deepen their understanding of slopes, angles, speed, slopes, potential and kinetic energy. Speedometry is a researched curriculum created by researchers a the University of Southern California Rossier School of Education.
