Washington Introduces Caps at School Program
Curriculum-based teaching tool is designed for fourth, fifth and sixth graders
Caps at School was created to provide Maryland, Virginia and Washington D.C., elementary school educators with resources that integrate hockey and Washington Capitals players into teaching lessons for math, language, art, health and physical education. This unique program offers engaging, classroom-ready lesson plans that will capture the attention of students and allow classes that complete the lesson plans the opportunity to win Caps prizes.
Students will learn math using NHL most valuable player Alex Ovechkin’s statistics. Capitals captain Chris Clark will help students hone their reading skills, while Matt Bradley will explain creative ways to be environmentally responsible in a fun art activity. Defenseman Mike Green will help teach different ways to become more healthy and active.
