Celebrate heroes around the world who stand up for justice and freedom. We will learn about local and international heroes, decide what makes a hero, and use your imagination in fun activities honoring heroes. With a partner, present to your classmates an amazing hero who dared to be different, through a short skit and a collage drawing.
