After a morning of “Superhero & Villian” (our week’s adaptation of “Cat & Mouse”) we had a day of real-life heroes. Read Aloud was short stories on three African-American heroes and our writing project was a brainstorm of what qualities a real-life hero possesses. The highlight of the day was making masks with qualities the campers felt a hero had. Many of the campers took this incentive to glue qualities onto their masks that described themselves and what made them a hero. Who a combination of art supplies, coloring materials, and magazine words and letters, the campers really loved putting together a mask version of their heroic selves.
