Win school visit from Marlins Think Tank


The Miami Marlins unveiled the new Marlins Think Tank.

The new curriculum-enhancement program is aimed to enrich the learning experiences of children grades 4 through 6 by linking baseball to the curriculum areas of Writing, Language Arts, Mathematics, Social Studies, Science, and Health & Fitness.

The program provides lesson plans which meet common core state standards as adopted by FDOE, with the Miami Marlins as the lesson theme

Throughout the lesson, students will read about baseball and learn about Miami and even hear from some current Miami Marlins professional baseball players. Students will hear from players like Logan Morrison who will delivery his take on art; Mr. Marlin Jeff Conine, who will discuss the science of baseball; or Steve Cishek, who will share his thoughts on the importance of imagination.

To enter the Marlins Think Tank Sweepstakes for a chance to win a special Marlins Think Tank visit, teachers must implement a Marlins Think Tank lesson found at, and then fax a completed activity to 305-480-4022 no later than April 25, 2013. Sixteen finalists will be selected at random.
