Passport to Courage

Students discuss the character trait of "courage of convictions" and apply this to their daily life. Using the internet, they research the life and work of Thomas McKean and discuss the courage needed to sign the Declaration of Independence. They locate New Zealand on a map and compare and contrast the country's culture to the United States.
