The Online Superhero Game Build-a-Hero Extension Activity is a teaching resource suitable for grades 1 to 5, with a particular focus on subjects such as Language Arts, Life Studies, and Specialty Resources in the curriculum. It's an exercise designed to stimulate creativity and critical thinking among learners.

Creative Warm-ups & Debates

The activity begins with creative warm-ups where students envision different tactical uses for objects. This stage opens opportunities for class debates - encouraging students' argumentation skills.

All in all, the Online Superhero Game Build-a-Hero Extension Activity not only garners creativity, critical thinking but shares a sense of collaboration among learners by offering an adaptable format acclimatizing to the diverse classroom needs.

With room for learners to express their creativity, complex problem solving, and unique perspective, the debate aspect of this activity brings in a low-pressure, yet enjoyable challenge for learners.
