What's a Hero to You? 8th Grade

Who is a hero to you?  Many of us would say our parents are heros.  Others might say firemen and women or police officers. Still others might say that they look up to professional sports players.


Your task:

Write a five paragraph essay explaining who is a hero to you. It must include...

  • an introduction
  • three body paragraphs explaining why that person is a hero WITH EXAMPLES
  • a conclusion that wraps up your feelings about that person


The most important part of this essay is giving examples of of the person's heroism. Did she stay calm during an earthquake? Is he a dog that leads the blind? Be specific with your examples.
