Holding Out for a Hero: Roberto Clemente
Students brainstorm lists of heroes, heroic qualities, and ways to pay tribute to heroes. In this Holding Out for a Hero lesson plan, students record Clemente's heroic attributes as athlete ad humanitarian. After visiting the Beyond Baseball site, students create their own Clemente exhibition using memorabilia. Lastly students determine whether their parent/guardian is an activist or humanitarian according to an object brought from home.
