Children for years have loved superheroes and we as teacher know all about being heroes! Bringing the superheroes and real life heroes together brings forth a holistic theme which allows children to bring their own knowledge of heroes and applying it to heroes of the present and past.
In this thematic unit, you will find a thematic plan, lesson structures, and accompanying resources for an array of lessons across this theme. The subjects covered in this unit are: Literacy, Geography, History, Science, Drama, Visual Art & SPHE. From Nelson Mandela to Superman, Malala Yousafzai to Batman & Robin, the children will explore heroes from plentiful perspectives.
