This is a way to have students research mutations, causes of mutations, and hook students into writing. This is a writing prompt to have students create a venn diagram (pre writing), a written compare/contrast, and creative thinking paragraph using real research.
Supports common core in research skills, siting sources of evidence, and comparing/contrasting ideas in written form. This could easily be adapted as a student presentation. Includes a short teacher info form on mutations of super heros with links to the wikipedia articles for further reference.
