GETTING STARTED WITH ROCKS & RINGS IN THE CLASSROOM
Last fall, Egg Farmers Rocks & Rings proudly launched In The Classroom, a way for teachers across Canada to deliver fun, curriculum-based lessons in math, science, social studies, and language based on the sport of curling.
Now, we want to give you a glimpse of the program and how it works, so you can feel comfortable getting started with your students – whether you’re in the classroom or online.
Provincial & Territorial Curriculum-based Lessons
When you register for In The Classroom, you are asked to indicate the province or territory in which you reside. Supplying this information ensures the lesson plan you are provided meets the curriculum outcomes outlined in your province or territory. Materials are also available en Français.
Lesson Plans by Grade
With lesson plans and activities categorized from grades 1 through 6, you can be sure to find the materials most appropriate for your students.
Ready-made and Customizable Google Lesson Slides
Each grade’s materials start with pre-made Google Lesson Slides, which can be downloaded and used as-is or customized with your own ideas. While lessons are curriculum-based, they all have a little curling-related flair, making them perfect for use during the winter months when the world is abuzz about curling.
PS: The Canadian men’s curling championship, known as the Tim Hortons Brier,runs Friday, March 5th – Sunday March 14th and is televised on TSN. Use this opportunity to get your students excited about the curling content in your lessons!
Supplement with Worksheets
Age-appropriate worksheets are available for all grade levels, including items such as reading comprehension, experiments, and creative thinking.
Have fun with Games, Activities, & Guided Art Projects
Since every kid needs to make time for fun, take a break from the lessons in favour of the available games and activities such as word scrambles and connect the dots, or check out the guided art project videos to learn how to draw a curling stone or make a curling broom out of household items.
