It’s that time of year for the Marlins@School program.
Details on the program that features the team reaching out to the South Florida area are in the community second of the www.marlins.com. Schools that are interested are encouraged to sign up soon.
The online program provides elementary school teachers, grade 4 through 6, with the opportunity to win a classroom visit by Marlins players, coaches, broadcasters and front office staff during Marlins@School Week (May 18 – 22).
For the seventh consecutive season, this online curriculum-enhancing teaching instrument assists educators in teaching Florida’s required standards on the following subjects: Language Arts, Science, Mathematics, Physical Education, and Geography. All five web-based chapters comply with FCAT requirements and are centered around six of the 2009 Marlins players as well as the Marlins Manager.
This downloadable program is designed to enrich the education of children by using the excitement and relevance of baseball as an additional teaching method. The program is available at no cost to all teachers and is accessible through the official Marlins@School website, www.marlinsatschool.com.
