Marlins Think Tank aims to enrich the learning experiences of children in 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 lessons, students will read about baseball, learn about Miami, and even hear from some current Miami Marlins professional baseball players!
Marlins players and coaches were once students just like you! As you complete Think Tank lessons, watch the corresponding supplemental videos.
Any participating 4th- 6th grade classroom can be eligible for a visit from Miami Marlins players, coaches, and broadcasters during Marlins Think Tank Week!
The Breaking Barriers Essay Contest is a chance for diverse students in grades 4-8 to share their personal stories and how they use Jackie Robinson's values to face their own barriers.
