|This week, we are highlighting the bravest superheroes. Read below for this weeks Superhero Challenge and to learn about ways to use your superhero powers this summer with Tristar Reads!
|Did you know knights are superheroes?
There were three main types of soldiers during the Middle Ages: foot soldiers, archers, and knights. Knights were heavily armored soldiers who rode on horseback.
Being armored for action with a trusted sidekick, knights are superheroes too!
Each knight has his own coat of arms, similar to a superhero’s costume. The pattern and colors of the coat of arms are highlighted on a knight’s shield, similar to a shield many superheroes carry. Knights even have flags with their coat of arms printed on them.
Put on your armor and be a superhero this summer! If you are or are the parent of a student in grades K-12, don’t forget to sign up for Tristar Reads. You’ll be entered for the chance to win a $1,000 scholarship!
