Batter Up!: Activities

Activity 3

The corporations will research and then discuss the effects that ultraviolet rays have on the human body. They will list skin conditions and diseases while recording preventative measures to be considered when designing the new team uniform.

Based on the corporation's knowledge of the team colors, weather conditions and future warming trends, they are to creatively design the ideal baseball uniform. Students are to be reminded of the technological advances in our society and design their uniform accordingly.

Students use brown craft paper to trace a life-size outline of a team member. This drawing becomes suitable for fashion design of the uniform. If this method is unavailable or unsuitable for your environment, a drawing of the uniform or a photo of one of the members dressed in the new design can be substituted. Along with their uniform will be a commentary explaining the group's reasons for its particular design.

Assessment

  • Originality and creativity of design.
  • Rationale for design choices.
  • Grammar and spelling in written commentary.
