Why does a basketball bounce? Why do skaters glide along the ice? The excitement of sports often disguises the fact that science affects all athletes. This special supplement will unlock the secrets of science in the sports that students love. Illustrated with photos of popular male and female athletes, this section will reach and teach both athletes and non-athletes. And it has been reviewed by a panel of science teachers!

Sample Newspaper Activity
What sports get covered in the newspaper often depends on where the paper is located. Pretend your local paper is based in Norway instead of the United States. What sports do you think you would read less about? What sports might you read more about? Write a paragraph explaining why you think this way.

Sponsor Suggestion
