The American Hero Party: A Lesson in Dedication

An American hero means different things to different people, but most people would consider anyone who joins one of the branches of the military (Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force, Coast Guard, and Army National Guard) a natural American hero. Each branch has a specific mission, but the individuals of these groups all dedicate their lives to serving and protecting the United States at home and abroad. Combat, especially the heated combat that presently exists in the Middle East is an example of the American hero at work. However, the American hero does more than participate in wars. The military is often called to respond to devastation, such as that that resulted from Hurricane Katrina of 2005. As many as 25,000 men and women of the Air National Guard and Army eased suffering and saved lives in Louisiana and Mississippi. You may have never considered it, but an American hero party is one that a teacher can have for just about any occasion.

Arranging a children’s party that is both fun and educational is easy with an American hero party. This type of party is appropriate for a teacher who wants to treat their young class with some fun and to teach them something. Allow students to choose a branch of military to research. The students would prepare an oral report of interesting discoveries about the military branch they chose. Students may also tell stories of relatives who have served in the military.

Each branch of the military is associated with specific colors. The students could dress in those colors. Separate the students into teams, according to the branch of military they chose to research. The students can play team games, such as tug-of-war. The team with the most points wins. The environment where the party is held should be decorated with a combination of the military colors and those associated with American freedom: red, white, blue.
