Comparing a Modern and Historic Hero Using WeMap+

We are busy with our social studies unit about heroes.

Last week pairs of students used WeMap+ to compare a modern hero (anyone still alive after my students were born) and a historic hero (anyone who had died prior to 2006). I asked them to focus on the many character trait words we've talked about as well as specific actions of the heroes.

Students used the web as an outline for a paragraph they wrote comparing/contrasting the heroes (completed on paper since parents still want their students to practice handwriting).
