The Flying Squirrels are pleased to offer our Education Day curriculum to families while schools are closed. The curriculum was designed by a Henrico County educator, incorporating state-mandated objectives, and was originally intended to be used by teachers before and after their field trip to the ballpark. We've divided the content into two pages: lessons and activities for K-2 students (available by clicking the button below) and also 3-5 students (available by scrolling down).

We would love to see any pictures you might take while your child is completing the activities. Feel free to click here and share them on our Facebook page! Also, be sure to enter a drawing in the Flying Squirrels art contest for a chance to have your child's artwork displayed at The Diamond this season!

Stay safe, HAVE FUNN and GO NUTS!
