A super crime to get a super camp started

Day One of the CWC Superhero camp is in the books.

My fellow teachers are James McCann and Kallie George and we each hit the ground running with some pretty fantastic activities. James set the kids up by leading them in a workshop of “origin” stories, while Kallie helped the kids design masks . . .

As for me, I decided to start the camp by having the kids invent a super crime for their superheroes to solve. And that meant making ransom letters. This is a great art and writing project that more or less turns into a treasure hunt for letters!

Here are some of the photos of the activity in process.

As you can imagine, this workshop creates quite a bit of mess. Luckily, we were able to procure a vacuum at the end of the day to just hoover away the mess!

Tomorrow’s task? Superhero theme songs and logos!
