I developed this activity to help my ESL students learn 21 of the most common baseball terms. They love cricket and can talk for hours about it, but have little understanding of the great American pastime. We not only studied baseball rules and vocabulary, we also read Play Ball, Amelia Bedelia and other fun baseball books. Other tie-ins would be the compare and contrast paper they wrote about baseball and cricket, our biography study of Jackie Robinson, and my Am, Are, Is Triple Play activity for practicing the present tense form of the verb be. To use this activity: print and laminate the shapes, then cut out the bats and balls separately, give each student a set and let them match the correct ball term with the correct bat definition. A recording sheet is provided for if you choose to use this as a center or other activity that needs to be assessed at a later time.
