    I do a baseball unit w/ my 4th graders, and will start it in a few weeks. Here are some activities I do.

    Student Baseball Cards:
    Each student creates a baseball card about himself/herself. The stats are just facts about themselves.

    Baseball biographies:
    Students draw from a hat a professional player's name. Then we spendsome time doing research online and using books. Students then create a "baseball card" for their player. You can even have the students do a "trading day" with their cards.

    Baseball spreadsheet and graph:
    Students choose a baseball team to track for ten games. They keep up with wins/losses for the 10 games on a spread sheet in excel. Then we use that data to create a graph.

    Books:
    Skinnybones by Barbara Park (novel, my favorite & students' favorite)
    Baseball Saved Us by Ken Mochizuki

    Hope you hit a "grand slam" with your baseball unit!
