Computer(s) with Internet access, pencils or pens, baseball worksheet.
Distribute the baseball worksheet. Have students read the statements about baseball numbered 1 to 15.
Above the statements is a T chart with the word Fact on one side of the T and the word Fiction on the other side. Tell students to write the statements they think are Fact under that word on the worksheet and the statements they think are Fiction under that word on the worksheet.
Once students have mapped all 15 statements onto the T chart to show prior knowledge about baseball, tell students to turn the page over and research the statements from the web site Exploratorium Science of Baseball.
Success will be based on how many statements students answer correctly on the worksheet.
