So, if you are a hockey fan you may know that the NHL All-Star game and skills competition was this past weekend. In our house it is bigger than the superbowl. While watching this weekend, there was a commercial for the "Science of NHL Hockey". They are free videos online and soon to be released lesson plans! Imagine my excitement!!! :-) I immediately looked them up online and watched the first video. They are definitely above my 5th graders head (they talk about vectors, statistics and averages, kinematics) but I figure that if he is interested in watching them .... we can make some use of them. The lesson plans are not available yet and are supposed to be available soon. If you are interested, check out the website http://www.nbclearn.com/portal/site/learn/science-of-nhl-hockey
If you are not hockey fans like us, they also offer Science of NFL football, Olympic Games, Changing Planet ... just to mention a few.
