Batter Up!: Introduction


About This Daily Classroom Special

Batter Up! ties in student's interest in Major League Baseball to geography, language arts, math, and use of the Internet. The Batter Up! Project Coordinator is Lottie Simms, teacher at Miami Lakes Middle School (Miami, FL), TeachNet web mentor, and Florida Marlins fanatic. You can e-mail Lottie or if you prefer the old-fashioned way: Lottie Simms, Miami Lakes Middle School, 6425 Miami Lakeway North, Miami Lakes, FL 33014.

Imagine... you and your partners have been granted the next new franchise in Major League Baseball. You need to decide on the city in which your team will play, the name of the team, the colors, the new uniform, and the advertising campaign to promote your team. You will even decide on the food to be sold in the concession stands at the stadium. Now that you have the idea, let's get busy!

Standards

The students will work in small cooperative learning groups to promote a new baseball team. The students will
  • prepare, deliver, and participate in oral presentations for a variety of purposes and audiences (language arts)
  • understand how technology facilitates the exchange of ideas and the movement of people (social studies)
  • systematically collect, organize, and analyze data as well as construct, read, interpret tables, charts, and graphs (mathematics - probability and statistics)
Procedure:
Divide the class into groups of three or four. Each group will form a "corporation" which will own and operate a new baseball franchise.
