The Lesson Arrange students into groups of 3 or 4 students. Ask each group to choose a sporting event from the list of field layouts you’ve made available. Challenge students to use the field layouts to identify geometry concepts in those sports/activities. They should identify the various shapes in their sport field and the tools/equipment of the sport too. They will create a miniature version of the field layout and plan a presentation that shares with the other groups how geometry plays a role in the sport. Assessment You might use a presentation rubric to grade student presentations. Perhaps students will use the rubric to grade their peers and/or themselves. Extension activity: Discuss the importance of why standards are set for sports playing areas.
