Baseball Study

So, over the summer E9 worked on a unit study about baseball. Everyday he would learn about a new baseball legend and a major league team. He got the chance to practice his cursive writing using a famous baseball quote. He even mapped out how many miles it would be to get to each stadium from our house. Baseballs were placed on our US map to signify where each team plays.

He had fun with it and hopes to do one similar with college football. I'll get right on that!!

These baseballs with team names represent the major league teams E9 studied.

We got the chance to see the Portland Seadogs play. So we checked up on the player we know distantly through former neighbors.

During the study Barry Bonds broke Hank Aaron's record. It gave us the perfect chance to discuss the controversy over Bonds' possible drug use.

He's getting better at cursive writing!
