    How Many Heroes Can You Name?

    1. Project the video and encourage students to name the heroes.
    2. Divide students into small groups and ask them to come up with a list of ten ideas or thoughts in answer to the question: What makes people important enough to be called a hero or to have a special holiday named after them? 
    3. Have students combine their lists into one large list.  Have them discuss and debate the order of importance of each of the items on the list.
