The Bowler’s Ed curriculum, revised in 2015, contains new and updated information:
STEM: The United States Bowling Congress (USBC) and Bowling Proprietors’ Association of America (BPAA) understand science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) are not just for professional scientists anymore and regularly are taught in elementary education. Through the unique characteristics of the sport of bowling, we are able to provide a fun and academically sound addition to the Bowler’s Ed curriculum, and further increase cross-curricular and academic enrichment.
This addition to the Bowler’s Ed Teachers Curriculum was designed to meet the growing needs of STEM instruction in elementary education. In a simple game of bowling, we can witness all types of situations that deal with motion, speed, velocity, acceleration, forces and more! The following teaching tool will cover bowling history, vocabulary and additional activities that can be taught in the classroom/bowling center or to an advanced audience.
Through the instruction of the Bowler’s Ed program and continued participation, it allows the educator to use science terminology and literacy devices covered in language arts classes. Students will be met with more cross-curricular learning opportunities compatible with history, geometry and many more activities blending athletics and academics.
