Hazard used both the Caps@School physical education and art lessons with her students in an effort to get her fourth-, fifth- and sixth-grade students interested in the game of hockey. She has plans to use the Caps@School Daily Physical Activity kit this spring to make sure that her students are staying physically active in and out of the classroom.
At the school Slapshot visited with the students while they enjoyed burritos, chips and salsa courtesy of Chipotle. After lunch Slapshot played games with the students in the gymnasium. Each student also got to take home a puck autographed by a Washington Capitals player.
Through the Caps@School program, the Capitals are making available to local educators a free, online curriculum-enhancing teaching tool for first- through sixth-grade classes. The Caps@School website features lesson plans with Caps players, player fun facts, stories and more.
Maryland, Virginia and Washington, D.C., teachers can enroll their classes for free and start to download lesson plans at the Caps@School website at CapsAtSchool.com.
