My last name is Stark, so naturally, I am a fan of all things "comic." For my ice breaker, I designed this personality test that allows students to explore themselves, while determining what kind of superhero they are. We all have a hero inside of us, and if we can determine that hero's strengths, weaknesses, and personal attributes, we can use them for good, or evil.
This activity is comprised of a two part worksheet. The first few pages are the quiz the students will take to determine their superhero classification. The following pages detail how to analyze the results of their quiz, as well as gives information of what kind of superhero the students are. In this manner, students not only learn about their individual qualities using the personality test scheme (they love), but the activity also allows students to see how they may relate to, or differentiate from, one another.
I also use this activity as a way to create seating arrangements. I create avenger-like teams of unlike minded superheros based on their individual results:)
