Superhero Camp
« on: July 06, 2010, 01:23:18 PM »
You could do super heroes? I think most grades would enjoy this. You can have simple ppt showing them superheroes, show clips, talk about designing your own super hero- what they can do, can't do, special powers, drawing, you can do games, roleplays and then even watch movies and discuss them and have worksheets etc.... They could even make their own super hero chat.

Heres a few things i've got together for this theme, I have 2 camps to do but i think im gonna use this one for supplementary classes as i've planned the camps already.

This is a good site for the younger activities, if you search super heroes, they also have older activities and a video about super hero high!

Superhero Lesson plan
« Reply #2 on: July 12, 2010, 01:21:54 PM »
Hi everyone,

One day of summer camp for my 5th and 6th graders I am going to do a superhero day! I am going to have them create a superhero, make a story about their superhero and such. Just wondering if anyone has any game ideas for this topic? Please let me know!

Thanks,
Lindsey

I'm doing one lesson on this topic and have opted for the following games...
* Guess that superhero. NT gives ss clues about the superhero and ss guess or  NT reveals parts of the hero and ss guess.
* Hero cut outs. Ss have strips of a superhero and need to move around the room finding all of the parts of their hero.
* Charades type game where ss act out super hero actions and their team members guess...

Just some ideas. :D

Can't remember where I found this (maybe here on waygook), but it's a good intro to the superheros theme.  Just take a picture of one of your students and insert -- the site does the rest for the video.

if you have access to PC's for S/Camp, found these websites where students can design their superhero and create a hero profile for themselves
http://cpbherofactory.com
http://www.thesuperheroquiz.com/ - they can 'discover' which superhero they are

I'm doing superheros for 2 days of camp.  First day intro and have students create their own superhero - poster etc.  Next day, each group will create own superhero skit with hero, villan etc. and perform it for prizes.

Superhero Choose Your Own Adventure
« Reply #9 on: December 15, 2010, 12:21:33 PM »
Hey! My students have loved the choose your own adventure games I have found on this site (A knock at the door, Exploding Dog) so I decided to make my own.  I have winter camp coming up and I'm doing a superhero theme so I've made a superhero choose your own adventure.

There is a very brief introduction to using the phrase "You should..." which will be used throughout the game.  When I play this game I will also review all of the other phrases and vocab we have already learned.

I won't be using this game for another couple weeks, so if you try it please let me know how it goes.   Do any of the story lines get neglected or are used too often?  Do any of them confuse the kids? etc.

If anyone else has cool superhero stuff I'd love to see it, then I can share more of the stuff I've made also.


EDIT There were a couple linking errors in the original powerpoint.  I've fixed those and re uploaded so you can use the powerpoint attached to this post now.

I should also point out that this lesson and game will most likely not take up a full period.  It will probably only take 20-30 minutes, depending on how into the game the students get.

Just finished a 2 day superhero camp.  I don't have all the files for the games bc my coteach isn't here but here is what we did.  we had 4 classes a day.  the 1st class on first day was introduction so no lesson for that class. 
Day 1
1.   Camp Intro
2.  Superheroes (intro) & Who's your favorite superhero worksheet
3.  Guess the Superhero/What superhero am I? worksheet
Don't have the file, but PPT where S's get clues like  he can fly he is fast he ----.  They have to guess which hero is is.
Then they did what superhero am i?  worksheet and got class to guess who.

4.  Making a superhero ( we used styrofoam balls (body), pipe cleaner (arms) , cellophane (cape) then the kids decorated with markers)

Day2
1.  Superhero Clothing and Accessories  (dont have this ppt, but taught students cape, mask, tights, symbol, boots, shield,ect) 
pass the ball game:  1st) as a class to review what they had just learned 2nd) split the class into 2 teams with two  balls and wrote the vocab on the board turned off the cpu screen.  When the music stopped I would say a random word and the students had to run and slap the word. (first team to slap gets a point)  3rd) erased the board and when music stopped I would say a word and 1 from each team would race to see who could spell it on the board.

2. Watched The Incredibles

3.  Making a mask and Cape.
http://familycrafts.about.com/cs/costumeacces/a/blsuphero.htm
CT actually got someone to sew pillowcases, but just plain white material would work fine.  Used markers instead of paint.

4.  who's the best superhero game:
Rock.Scissors.Paper battle game:  there were levels of power:  walk, run, jump, climb, fly, shoot fire, disappear, control minds.  PPT:  powers vocab, explained levels. 
We wrote the levels on the WB and made up actions for each one. 
Game starts:  S's all start at "walk" level.  Go around saying I can walk, I can walk repeatedly.  Then the meet someone who also has the same "power" as them and they play R/S/P.  Winner moves up to next level loser stays at same level.  If a student makes it to the highest level "mind control"  they have to R/S/P with the teacher.  If they win they are the best superhero in the class.
We played this a few times. S's liked it.  We also played a version where if the student lost to the teacher all S's went back to walk and had to restart.

Design-a-superhero lesson
« Reply #14 on: January 09, 2011, 11:25:24 PM »
a 40-minute lesson where students design their own superhero, and hopefully learn something!
Everything is in the zip file, ppts and the lesson structure - you just need paper to give them. There's one version for lower-level (grade 3/4) and one for higher-level (grade5/6).

Thanks for putting the effort in.  I've just incorporated into my lesson on 'you'd better....'.  I know how much work goes into Choose Your Own Adventures so I just wanted to say 'appreciated'.

We are teaching Superheroes for a day-long English "camp".  Each week we get one class from a local Elementary or Middle School and we have to teach them something - it's usually three sets of vocabulary and some kind of game.  We have based this very loosely on the MES-English Project which you can read about here
http://youtubeunblocker.co.uk/go.php?a=f95f0cb325dBv8inzcdYaclMv1lLKE5qzM1YaOvrv9crUWfL255Mv9znTAlMJLhL3Iw&b=3

we also use his Eigoman game and they work well together.  Basically we are teaching superpowers/verbs, adjectives, and clothing.  Then the students create and introduce their own superheroes.

This could be used for a winter camp or stretched out over a semester if you are into Project Based Learning.  Hope it helps.

I realize this is far dated compared to the posting date here, but were you thinking of the Avengers? Also, Tony Stark (Ironman) and the Hulk are a part of Marvel Universe (Marvel -> Xmen, Spiderman, Ironman, the Hulk, Capt. America, Fantastic Four, etc. acquired by Disney in '09). Batman belongs to the DC Universe and is a part of the Justice League (DC -> Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, the Green Lantern, etc.). Hellboy is published by Dark Horse comics. Sorry... I'm a comic geek.......

But anyways, I was planning on doing a superhero lesson someday for my students and these are some GREAT starting points, thanks waygook guys and girls! XD
