CLASSROOM – Heroes
Heroes – everyone has one and some of them might even be in the classroom. National Superhero Day inspires this week’s classroom projects. Our heroes put on a brave face in times of adversity. They look out for others, even at their own risk. Heroes by definition put others first. It isn’t always about safety or feats of physical strength. Sometimes, our heroes set an example that we admire. And maybe someday, our words, actions, or deeds will add up to being worthy of a fraction of the admiration we hold for our heroes.
HOW TO OBSERVE
Download and print this week’s projects. Share them with parents and guardians to do at home or incorporate them into an assignment.
Of course, as always, sharing on social media isn’t required; learning is. But if you do, please use #NDCClassroom to share on social media.
