Unit 2: Community Heroes
Big Question: What heroes live in your community?
Heroes face hard situations with strength, courage, and wisdom. When we learn about community heroes, we learn about the people who make our community a safe, exciting place to be. We also find out where to find help when we need it.
A community hero can be a dog. Many police forces use a dog’s powerful sense of smell to sniff out dangerous situations. A police dog is called a K-9.
