Lynne Middleton, Interim State 4-H Curriculum Specialist

Tennessee 4-H is fortunate to have skilled and educated Extension agents and state specialists who are willing to create resources for 4-H members.

This week, we are highlighting two new STEM lesson plans published for use by agents, volunteers, or even youth.  

 Up, Up, and Away
This lesson focuses on propellants, trajectory, and gravity. Students can build a rocket and see firsthand how creative elements can add to the success of its flight. It was developed by Ashley McCarter of Sevier County.

A Dollop of Density
This lesson focuses on understanding mass, volume, and density. Students can participate in hands-on activities where they develop hypotheses and measure different densities. It was developed by Lori Duncan and Mike Buschermohle of Biosystems Engineering and Soil Science. 
What wonderful work we have being done in Tennessee 4-H!  A BIG thanks goes out to Ashley McCarter, Lori Duncan, and Mike Buschermohle for their hard work!

If you have lesson plans that you would like published, send them to Lynne Middleton, interim state 4-H curriculum specialist.
