What is a hero? Enhance your unit about Veteran's Day with this mini unit. Included is: a what is a hero writing project with a graphic organizer and three different kinds of writing paper, a poem template (which is great to reinforce nouns, verbs and adjectives), and a cute craft template. I created these activities out of a desire to do something different then the traditional write a letter to a veteran. I wanted my students to think more critically about what a veteran or a hero truly is and then apply this concept to their own life and experiences. This unit is great independently or paired with our Hero Dad Veteran's Day mentor sentence unit.
