Superhero

This is a writing exercise. It can be used as a homework exercise or as an in class team writing exercise.

Students write a story about one of four hero pictures provided by the teacher. The students should provide a name for their hero, the powers they have and one thing they are afraid of.

I am a firm believer in letting the students pick which super hero they want to write about, however, you could also randomly assign a hero to each student or team.

The teacher should provide the students with vocabulary, or be prepared to answer vocabulary questions students may have.

For students with more artistic skill, a blank sheet is provided so that they can add their own pictures.

This activity works wonderfully with a gallery share at the end to consolidate language.
