Batter Up!: Activities

Activity 4

Upon completion of their uniform design, the students will use the Internet to search for the seating capacity of the major league baseball parks and stadiums. On a teacher prepared worksheet, the students will research the names of the parks/stadiums and record the baseball seating capacity.

The gathered statistics will be used to create a class pictograph.

Each team is to cut out seven baseballs from a teacher-made template and decorate for the graph. Each baseball is valued at 10,000 seats. Each team is assigned a ballpark and its corresponding seating capacity. Using their knowledge of estimation, the students are to estimate the seating capacity to the nearest 1250 or 1/8th of a baseball. Folding a baseball in half three times will form fractions each equal to 1250 seats. Create a chart for the students showing them what each eighth of 10,000 is worth. Students are to cut the fraction that is closest to their seating capacity. Groups should then affix the baseballs to the graph and label it accordingly.

Assessment

  • Participation in bar graph.
  • Participation in time line.
  • Print out of data base will be graded for accuracy.
