This project can be done either in class or on students' own time. The project booklet includes assessment and individual and group components as well. This project is intended to conclude a chemistry unit that focuses on elements, the periodic table and properties of matter. Students love the creativity, choice and cooperative learning that they can have with this project!
The booklet is very straight-forward. Students will pick whichever element they would like to base a superhero on. I have given students a list in the past to choose from to ensure that there was variability in the projects.
If students do it during class time, you should set aside approximately 3 classes for students to complete all aspects of the project.
Students can present their final projects to the class. This will take approximately 1-2 classes depending on how large the class is.
