This is a great way to end the yer, kick off the yer, or relieve the “this is boring” blues. The unit consists of activities and ideas based on 50 great American heroes. Included in the list are men, women, back, white, Hispanic, and American Indian names. A Hero in You allows students and teachers man choices for research and includes parent involvement throughout the unit. Since the heroes are from all areas of achievement this becomes cross-curricular in nature. It is great fun, highly motivational and educational. Included in the unit is a pre/post test to measure student learning, daily planning suggestions, and a culminating activity to include parents and community members.
