The Hero in Me Teacher's Guide
Discover how we all can be heroes.
In The Hero in Me, 9-11 year old learners will find out about themselves and their global Jewish community by exploring five character traits: courage, kindness, creativity, curiosity, and fairness. They'll consider modern and historical Jewish heroes who embody these strengths, and learn how to cultivate the strengths in themselves.
Through games, art projects, and lively discussions, kids will explore Judaism as a source of strength and inspiration as they navigate an increasingly complex world.
