Heroes and Heroines from Foreign Lands

Heroes and Heroines from Foreign Lands


Christopher Reeve, the original actor for Superman, once said, “A hero is an ordinary individual who finds the strength to persevere and endure in spite of overwhelming obstacles.” 


This class will teach you about heroes and heroines from throughout history and around the world. Heroes and heroines come from all around the world and are respected for many different reasons. A hero or heroine can fight for peace, discover new medicines, or even open the eyes of others to things that were previously unknown. But, most importantly, whatever they do, they never give up! 


It is essential to remember that heroes can come from anywhere, not just the place we know best. Because of this, we will be studying heroes from everywhere from Poland, to India, to Australia, to South Africa. 


Join us as we take a close look at the story of remarkable people like Indira Gandhi, Usain Bolt, Dashrath Manjhi, Wangari Maathai, Florence Nightingale, Mahatma Gandhi, Joan of Arc, Nelson Mandela, Louis Pasteur, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, and Steve Irwin.
