My Hero Learning Circle - Elementary/Middle School - January 2013 Learn about our children's heroes from around the world!
My Hero Learning Circles
is an online global exchange that has My Hero partnered with iEARN.org.
Teachers and students from around the world learn about each others cultures,
communities, countries and of course, their heroes. The world is brought into each
of their classrooms and their classrooms into the world. This diverse circle of
Elementary and Middle school students is composed of classes participating from
USA (2), Canada, Belarus, Romania, Ukraine, Russia and South Africa. The My
Hero Project thanks you for all your hard work and for your amazing results, that
everyone can see on this page. I encourage everyone to take some time and click
through ALL of the classes in this new archive of heroes as seen through the
eyes of our children. Happy New Year. Wendy Jewell - Facilitator
Teacher Loredana Popa and her class from Scoala Gimnaziala NR. 17 Botosani, Romania had a lot of fun participating in the global My Hero Learning Circles. They created quizzes about How to choose a hero and What should a hero do, that are included as links that you can share with your class. They also created collages of words about heroes. Took pictures of each of the groups of students and then shared their heroes with us in words and art. Do yourself a favor and click on the link above... and enjoy!
The second grade
students from the classes of Erica Hudson, Jeannie Ferretti, Kimberly Raidell,
Tami James and Cecilia Eppler participated in the international
project, My Hero Learning Circles, with 7 other countries. The boys discussed
what it means to be a hero and then learned about the life of the American
astronaut, Neil Armstrong. They interviewed people in our school, did research
about heroes, discovered fun facts, watched the Moon Landing and then created
ART about their hero. Click on the link above and scroll down to discover their journey.
Our experience in the My
HeroŁ project. It was our second project in Learning Circles space and we were
glad to take part in it. At first my students were thinking over this theme for
some time, their ideas and thoughts seemed very interesting, because their
projects reflect their inner world. For me, it was also interesting to know who
they consider a Hero and why they think so. It goes without saying the activity
was very useful for developing their English language skills. Thank you very
much for all! Teacher...Irina Sakhatskaya
