Using baseball greats to practice research skills is sure to be a HIT! The Baseball Hall of Fame Research project from Homeschool Holiday is PACKED with choices.
This activity is can be printed or used digitally as everything in the PDF is also included on Google Slides as well. Just use the included link to access and make your copy.
Our products are designed to help celebrate the everyday holidays, and this can be used to recognize the establishment of the Baseball Hall of Fame on June 12, 1939.
You can also use it at the start of the season, or as an engaging way to support any number of books about baseball or famous ballplayers.
Students can research any or all of the following included Hall of Fame players:
I have provided an introduction to baseball video to get the lesson started. (This lesson also appears in my MAP THE MAJORS, and BASEBALL BINGO). It is designed to help those who may not be as familiar with the sport excited about the project, and those already familiar will enjoy the refresher!
Learners will gather knowledge about the Baseball Hall of Fame and 6 different players that are members of the Hall of Fame. As they research the players using the included Informational Text, and QR codes (or links) they take notes and compile a themed shape book (Baseball Glove or Baseball) about the players. This helps learners summarize what they have read and seen through the videos, and demonstrate their learning .
Learners LOVE the Make Your Own Baseball Card Project! The Baseball Cards can be as simple or as detailed as you'd like - there is a variety to choose from. The most detailed are linked / QR codes to the player's Hall of Fame fact page where their personal career statistics can be found and copied onto the card.
The GOOGLE version of this activity is designed to make sending documents to students easier, in a digital learning model. Only the mini books would need to be printed (or left out). The Baseball Card portion has been converted to "text boxes" for ease of use, and students are asked to insert an actual photograph of players instead of drawing. (This skill is not taught as part of the lesson - finding images, inserting, sizing, etc.) The videos and links are all ready to go and provide learners with independent, engaging work that is academically challenging.
Be sure to check out all our Baseball themed activities!
