Brunswick Acres Cycle 4 – Superhero Projects

The focus of Cycle 4 was Language Arts & Communication.  During this cycle, 5th graders learned about characterization and the elements that make up a superhero.  They read and analyzed classic superhero origin stories, and compared/contrasted them.  After learning about this genre, students worked in small groups to create their own superhero.  For their superhero they were asked to identify the following elements:

  • Background
  • Public or “Secret” Identity
  • Place of Residence
  • Special Powers
  • Special Equipment
  • Appearance
  • Weaknesses/Enemies
  • Catch Phrase/Slogan

Students then wrote the origin story for their superhero and created an illustration.  Finally, students used the web 2.0 tool Animoto to create a video trailer introducing their superhero to the world!  We hope you enjoy their creative and hard work!
