This is a unit project that is a creative way for students to learn more about the world around them. After choosing a current environmental issue, the student is tasked with creating a superhero that can come and save the day.
The most important part of this project is the importance of a hero being viewed as a symbol. A true hero motivates people to step up and change the world around them.
This project can be completed within a 3-4 week period. Students will be required to research their topic, fill out information about their topic, and then finally present their project in the form of a poster.
