Read it! Write it!
In this lesson, there are four short videos about courage.
First, think about what the word “courage” means to you. Print out the note-taking worksheet, Blank Fillable Notes Template, and write down a sentence or two on the lines at the bottom of the worksheet.
Second, watch this video on courage from Steve Hartman (and his kids). Steve Hartman: Kindness 101 Pause the lesson after each video segment within the lesson, take a few notes about how courage was shown in each one.
Third, try the activity Steve and Meryl discuss at the end of the lesson!
If you can’t print out the note-taking worksheet, you can take notes on any paper. Or if you just want to watch the videos and try the activity at the end, that’s okay, too!

Read this article and answer the questions to find out more about the Battle of Puebla, or Cinco de Mayo.
Fourteen years before Mexico battled the French in the town of Puebla, California was still part of Mexico. Another war, the Mexican-American War, changed that. At the end of this war with America, Mexico was forced to give up the land that later became many of the western states in the U.S.A. The same year this happened gold was discovered in California, and a year later the Gold Rush began. Do you think Mexico would have fought the Mexican-American War differently if gold had been discovered before it happened instead of afterward? Share your thoughts with a family member.
