We commemorate the Cry of Pugad Lawin in the last Monday of August every year to honor the heroes of the past. The Cry of Pugad Lawin in 1896 started the
Philippine Revolution that led to the country’s independence in 1898.
While we salute our National Heroes, let us also celebrate our modern-day heroes which includes the front-liners, the essential workers and the teachers…
We made a one-minute video, as well as worksheets for the kids so they can try to learn and remember key names, dates and places on this significant day in the Philippines.
One good discussion point for national heroes' day are the traits and characteristics of a hero. Do they need to have capes? What makes a hero, a hero? What are the results of their sacrifices?
