Product Description
Heroes Change Communities Unit for 3rd Grade Social Studies! Students explore the characteristics of a hero while studying historical figures throughout history in this comprehensive Social Studies unit!

Who is This For?
3rd Grade Students
Teachers looking for ready-to-go resources and engaging activities

What is Included?
This 2-4 week unit focuses on heroes and how heroes influence communities. Many heroes listed in the Texas standards lack easy to find resources so I've compiled a list of resources with book titles, links, and fact sheets to go along with this unit.

Focus Areas:
* Exploring Heroes: Students read, talk, and learn about different heroes and reflect on what it means to be hero. They will learn the traits of a hero and how a hero is defined by their traits, deeds, and beliefs. Students work in groups to research a hero, create a poster, and then create a giant timeline!

* My Heroes and Me: In the second part, students think about their own personal heroes and create a poster to share with the class. They study first responders as heroes, and end by reflecting on ways that they can be a hero for others.

Included Resources:
* detailed lesson plans
* full color images of historical figures
* graphic organizers
* writing activities with sentence stems
* hero foldup
* template for hero trading cards
* templates for posters
* resources and fact sheets on the heroes studied

Heroes Included: Ruby Bridges, Helen Keller, Clara Barton, Juliette Gordon Low, James A. Lovell, Todd Beamer, Ellen Ochoa, Hector P. Garcia, Martin Luther King, Jr., and The Four Chaplains.

*Extension Activities also included!

Why Buy?
All the resources you need to help students learn about heroes and meet the Texas TEKS in one fun unit! Easily adaptable to any timeline and perfect for integration into reading and writing work.
