 First Meeting

Introductions Presentation (for young readers)

Please feel free to download this slide presentation (available as a PowerPoint file or as a PDF) to be used during a First Meeting Introduction with a classroom or afterschool group. Each screen asks the same questions: Who am I? What makes me a hero? to break the ice and stimulate discussion between young, early, and non-readers alike. Who is a hero? What is a super-power? What does being a hero entail? Getting the bad guys. Rescuing a person. Saving the day.
