Boston Bruins I.C.E. School

While happily watching the first Bruins game of the season Saturday night, there were a few ads for the new Boston Bruins I.C.E. School. Curious, I hopped online and navigated my way to the I.C.E. School program website. It offers some pretty great FREE curriculum materials for grades K-8. There is an online form you must fill out in order to access the materials.

As you can see in the screen shot below, curriculum resources are sorted by  grade and subject. Sherwood teachers can find ELA, Math, and Science material while Oak teachers can access Math materials, many of which could also be used in 8th grade Science classes.

In addition to the core classes, there are also curriculum materials available for French, PE, and "Miscellaneous" materials that focus on teambuilding and school climate. Why should you consider the curriculum created by the Boston Bruins I.C.E. School? It makes learning fun and relevant, especially for students who are hockey fans!
