Caps@School is back for its fourth season. The Washington Capitals continue to bring the excitement of hockey to local classrooms. During the 2012-13 season the Capitals are making available to local educators Caps@School, a FREE, online curriculum-enhancing teaching tool for first- through sixth-grade classes. The Caps@School website features Caps-themed lesson plans, stories, educational games and more. Teachers and students participating in Caps@School can win Chipotle burrito parties with Slapshot as well as autographed memorabilia. The first 100 classes to register or sign back into the program will receive a special gift from the Capitals.
Maryland, Virginia and Washington, D.C., teachers can enroll their classes for FREE and start to download lesson plans immediately at the Caps@School website at http://www.CapsAtSchool.com.
Caps@School was created to provide Maryland, Virginia and Washington, D.C., elementary school educators with resources that combine the sport of hockey and Washington Capitals players to teach math, language, art, science, health and physical education. New for this season is the addition of two new SMART Board lesson plans for third-grade classes, new monthly math and language worksheets and downloadable educational games. 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.
