Students search their school, home, and neighborhood for interesting junk to use in found-object artwork. Next, they write an accompanying superhero story that features the objects they find!
This project is best as individual work. The objectives are to craft a narrative by using found objects in creative ways, to sequence information to carry out a procedure, and to use a variety of sentence structures!
