This is one unit study you won't want to miss!

215 pages!  95 multisensory activities!

Come along with Intellego Unit Studies on an exciting journey through American history, geography, physics, statistics, geometry, economics, literature, art, music, and so much more, using baseball as the central theme!

Your children will explore baseball through the lens of American historical events such as the Civil War, the opening of Ellis Island, the invention of the radio, World War II, the Civil Rights era, and the development of commercial jets. 

Geography skills and knowledge are gained through an exploration of the expansion of the nation and the development of leagues in Cuba and Japan.  Physics, statistics and geometry are fun when explained in practical and applicable ways, as well as coupled with hands-on activities and experiments!  Economic laws, such as supply and demand, are easy to understand when they are explained in real life terms using the baseball business model. 

Along the way, your children will meet the influential players and personalities, including the Negro Leagues and the All American Girls Professional Baseball League.  They will ponder the baseball-related writings of great American poets and authors such as Longfellow, Whitman, Thayer, Twain, Fitzgerald, Hemingway, and Kinsella.  And of course, they will study art and music as they relate to the great national pastime.

This is the perfect summer unit study, bringing your children multisensory learning through a fun and hands-on approach to multiple subjects.  They will gain the conceptual and theoretical understanding as well as real life applications.  Batter up!

All 95 activities in this unit study are laid out in an easy to follow format with an active and updated web link.  Click on the link and the best resources on the World Wide Web appear for your children.  But this unit study is not just a collection of web sites to read!  It is much more than that!  The links bring the world to your children by providing streaming videos, interactive web sites, educational games, audio files, hands-on activities, experiments, crafts, and more.  At Intellego Unit Studies, we believe in the varied learning styles and multiple intelligences of every child.  That's why all of our unit studies include reading and writing activities, videos, art, music, comparisons, drawing and painting, discussions, hands-on activities, experiments, art projects, full-color high resolution graphics, printable activity pages, and more!

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
