The Boston Bruins I.C.E. School program serves to provide Kindergarten through 8th grade teachers in Massachusetts, Maine, New Hampshire, Connecticut, Rhode Island and Vermont with supplemental curriculum materials incorporating the sport of hockey and the Bruins into lesson plans that align with the common core standards.
I.C.E. School curriculum materials consist of numerous supplemental lesson plans for every grade level including French, geography, math, ELA, physical education and science. Examples of lesson plans include graphing and identifying landmarks with "NHL Scores" math worksheets, practically relating statistics by tracking Bruins player statistics, resolving conflict by reading books such as Peril At the World's Biggest Hockey Tournament and The Farm Team, and exploring the attendance of hockey games by tracking climates in cities across the country.
Students will be motivated in the classroom with this new way to look at learning. Those who complete the lesson plans will receive a completion certificate signed by a Bruins player and have the chance to win a visit to the classroom by Blades, the Bruins mascot, and the Boston Bruins Ice Girls!
Teachers who participate in Bruins I.C.E. School have the opportunity to receive Bruins prizes including autographed merchandise and a Blades classroom visit. Registered teachers are automatically included in monthly I.C.E. School newsletter, which contains program updates, exclusive ticket offers and contests.
