New Orleans teachers are capitalizing on the success of the New Orleans Saints -- who will compete in their first Super Bowl on Sunday -- by including the team in classroom lessons and creating excitement among students and teachers. One group of third-graders learned how $4,000 might be spent attending the Super Bowl, and another group is using statistics to determine which NFL team is the best -- a project the students began before the playoffs. Teachers have infused football and the Saints into other lessons as well, including writing, poetry and history.
