St. Louis Cards Offer At Home Activities for Students
The St. Louis Cardinals announced selected activities from their award winning Cardinals Academic Program (CAP) will be offered online at cardinals.com/cap so students can learn from home.
According to the St. Louis Cardinals, CAP is a field trip-based educational experience for students in the third through eighth grades that combines elements of the game of baseball with school curriculum. Each unit was designed with an emphasis on state standards from Missouri and Illinois along with federal Common Core guidelines where students apply their knowledge to real-world situations. Since its inception in 2006, the Cardinals have welcomed over 125,000 students to the CAP experience.
Additionally, students can bring one of their completed worksheets to the St. Louis Cardinals Hall of Fame and Museum for a free child's admission with one adult paid admission when the museum re-opens later this summer.
“This is a great opportunity for the Cardinals to offer something a little different,” said Brian Finch, manager of tours and museum operations for the Cardinals. “It also provides a light at the end of the tunnel with the incentive to complete an activity for an opportunity to visit our museum once we reopen.
In addition to these CAP activities, the Cardinals Museum is also posting daily content to their social media platforms. Fans can enjoy videos, photo features and stories from the Cardinals Museum staff by visiting: @cardinalsnation on both Facebook and Instagram.
