Students should have prior knowledge how to use the internet for searching. In this lesson they will be looking through various baseball hall of famers to choose the one they want as their criterion player. These stats are what they will be using to compare with their active player. Each student will click on the hall of fame web site and look through the many players and make a decision on who they want.
If students haven't had prior experience researching on the internet, they should practice.
Tell students the purpose of the lesson. The player they choose will be the person used as comparison for their project.
