Ollyball has teamed up with Dr. Amanda Gummer’s Toy Education Team to create a series of STEAM Edition Ollyballs. The first edition is Ollyball PHYSICS; it has a peer-reviewed Lesson Plan with hands-on to experiments that teach the science of “Force”, “Velocity" and the "Coefficient of Restitution!” This lesson plan was reviewed by educators teaching children of the relevant age to ensure it reflects current best practice and includes activities that enhance the benefits of Ollyball and highlights relevant learning objectves. This plan is age-appropriate for the 7-to-9-year age group depending on the student or child’s skill level. It provides guidance for educators and parents of children in 3rd and 4th grade ideally. A modification was provided for children 4-to-6-years-old and children 10-to-12-years-old.
