9 American Heroes
: This pack includes 9 different American Heroes. It includes an ‘all about’ poster organizer, as well as a piece of themed writing paper for each person.
Although these posters were designed with the 3rd grade Georgia social studies curriculum in mind, they could be used by students in other states and probably could be used by fourth and fifth grade students too if you were just interested in having them do some research. Please look at the thumbnail pictures and look at the topics on the poster mentioned below to help you make an informed buying decision.
Grab your media specialist, get some books on topic, watch informational videos, get your computers ready, and have fun learning about all of the famous people.
There are lots of ways to use these posters. Please feel free to use them however you would like in your own classroom. One way would be to use the poster pages as an organizer and have every student fill in the information during class discussions, using videos, class books, etc. I would probably go ahead and bind the 9 pages in a book form with a cover page. Use a new poster in the book each time a new person is introduced. Once all posters are completed, they will have a completed American Hero Book that can also be used throughout the year and before state testing for review. Once again, this is just a suggestion. You can use them however works best for you.
The topics on the posters were chosen based on the Georgia standards, so once again, please make sure to read them carefully to make sure you think they will work for you. Thank you.
On each poster you will find :
**Place for child's name
**Image of the famous person and their name
**Explain how the person expanded rights (ex. civil, workers, etc)
**Evidence from their life to support the traits
**place for 5 vocabulary words and definitions. NOTE: they will need to write small or double up their writing in the box. It is a BRIEF definition.
**How they overcame obstacle
**Respect and authority? Explain
**Mark places on a US map that were important to their life. List places
**Writing paper for each person is also included.

I have also included an 8.5x11 title poster that you could laminate and hang above the posters if you chose to make a bulletin board or hallway display.
