Product Description
This is an assignment used to help students review brain parts during the Biological unit in Psychology or AP Psychology. It would work best being given after covering the brain structures and their functions in class.

Students are asked to write a "superhero" paper while incorporating psychological knowledge. They invent a superhero and supervillain who have obtained superpowers due to brain abnormalities or accidents. Each character must have two superpowers with two corresponding brain structure modifications that relate to the power. For example, the superhero's pituitary gland might be overactive which has caused him to be huge, or the supervillain's amygdala might have been damaged, resulting in constant aggressive behavior.

The document includes instructions for the assignment, a planning sheet to help students organize their work, and a short rubric for assessing the finished product. All of these are modifiable for your particular classroom.

Please note that the fonts "For the One Hundredth Time" and "Maiandra GD" are used in this document. If your computer does not have these fonts installed, it will automatically replace them with a default font, which will cause it to look different than the screenshots indicated and require you to re-format.
