Product Description
I have combined my love of baseball and economics into this engaging research project. Students will research a Baseball Legend. I used the Baseball Card Adventure Series by Dan Gutman to choose the players. You could do the research and poetry portions of this activity without reading the books, but I like to integrate as many subject areas as possible.

Students will participate in a book study, research a player, take notes on a graphic organizer, create a bio poem about their player, write a short biography, and present everything to the class. All necessary handout, websites, instructions, and a rubric are included in the product.

You could use this activity to just teach ELA standards, but I have a personal love for teaching economics. So, I extended the teaching to consider how players improve their human capital and the importance of good decision making skills. I have included discussion questions to cover these topics.

There are also more baseball themed items in my TPT store that would go perfectly with this activity as a part of a bigger unit. Be sure to check those out as well. Please like my Facebook page to see photos of my resources in action in my classroom.
