Activity Overview

We often think of heroes as someone with magical powers, or someone with superhuman strength and abilities. In truth, heroes are found all around us in everyday life. Welles Crowther, as well as so many others on September 11th, displayed true heroic qualities that any of us are capable of possessing. For this activity, students will choose someone in their life who is their hero and create a poster about that person. They should make sure to include why that person is their hero.
