Each month, I’ll spotlight a book-based educational activity teachers and homeschooling parents can use with their students. These activities are pulled from the educators’ guides developed for my books by author and former educator Marcie Colleen. You can download the full A TRUE WONDER educator’s guide here.
The Hero In Me
Brainstorm a list of the qualities and actions that make Wonder Woman a hero. Then undertake the following project:
- Have each student lay down on a large piece of butcher paper while someone traces their body with a pencil. Alternatively, download a printable worksheet, like this Superhero Cape printable from Nurtured Neurons for students to use.
- Once the student has the silhouette of their body or cape, they can write the things that make Wonder Woman a hero outside the outline.
- Inside the outline, they can write some of the qualities they share with Wonder Woman or ways in which she has inspired them.
- Then students can decorate their silhouette or cape. Photos and other images can be added to create a collage.
- For extra fun, challenge students to come up with their own superhero name. (For grown ups, you can find a superhero name generator here.)
