Create Your Alter-Ego
Zorro isn’t a superhero, but rather an ordinary guy fighting for what he believes is right. If you were an avenger of justice, what would you fight for? What kind of hero would you be? Together, create your alter-egos, with a little help from the template below.
First, ask each other the following questions:
A) What is your name?
B) What is your favorite animal?
C) What is the Spanish word for that animal?
(for reference, use the chart at the bottom of the page)
D) What do you believe is worth fighting for?
E) What is the strongest thing you can think of?
F) What is the fastest thing you can think of?
G) What skill or talent are you proud of?
H) What is your motto or catch phrase?
Now, fill in the template with your answers to create your alter-ego!
By day, my name is (A)____________ but when I’m out fighting for justice I go by the name (C)____________.
I fight for (D)____________________________________.
I’m strong like a (E)____________ and fast like a (F)____________ but my greatest power is (G)________________________.
Every time I am successful in my quest, I say ”(H)________________________.”
Make Your Mark
Now that you have a name like Zorro’s, you must create your mark! Every time Zorro accomplishes a task, he leaves behind a big ‘Z’ as a way for people to know that justice has been served.
Create the mark you would leave behind when fighting for justice! You may use your alter-ego’s first initial, or develop your own symbol. Be as creative as possible, and think about color and your own style in creating your heroic flair.

Leave Your Mark
Zorro helps others in the name of honor, but keeps his true identity a secret from those he protects. See if you can do the same!
• Find the Mission: Think of something you could do that would be really nice or helpful to someone in your house (e.g. Making a delicious sandwich for a family member or doing someone else's chores).
• Wait for the Right Moment: Make sure you accomplish your task without them seeing you.
• Leave Your Mark: After you’ve completed the act, leave behind a piece of paper with your signature mark.
Go the Extra Mile: When you do something kind or generous for someone in your household, hide your true identity! Create a disguise to complete your alter-ego using only what you can find in your house.
