Key Stage 2 Complete is hosting a set of Superhero Resources. The first one is a SMART Notebook file to support the first lesson in a Superheroes series of maths lessons focusing on working systematically. The original plan can be found here.
The same teacher has shared a plan for a cross-curricular unit of work on Superheroes. It investigates:
- What makes a good Superhero
- Developing their own character
- Selecting relevant information from a website
- Creating a comic strip
- Writing a new reports
- Making film props and costumes
- Writing an autobiography
- Creating a film trailer
This set of resources comprises a set of ideas for a cross curricular project on Superheroes, plus a week long plan for Superhero themed Maths. There is also a Webquest based around Heroic Animals. Lots of fun! The ideas page is very Literacy/ICT orientated.
A Superheroes Topic Web covering D&T, Art, Music, PHSE, PE, ICT, Maths and English is also available with some great ideas.
There is a great set of Flash KS1 Superheroes Activities. These are not available for the ipad so need to be used on laptops or desktops.
TES also provide the first PowerPoint in a series to help students explore the idea of superheroes, and the comic genre. This PP asks students to explore what makes a superhero so super.
