Superheroes Unite! Creative writing challenge for children
Today is national superhero day! And what better occasion to present our new team of Digital Superheroes... for solving digital disasters!
Superheroes Unite is a fun creative writing exercise that taps into children’s imaginations. These six friends are new additions to the Digital Schoolhouse team and they will be helping us to solve digital problems for future activities. First though, we need to build their superhero profile.
Children are invited to develop a full profile for each character and use that to develop their superhero backstories. There are multiple ways that this activity can be delivered, with each child either working completely independently or together, with the characters divided between them. the guidance will discuss some of the ways that children can work their way through this, that can be adapted by both parents and teachers.
The Digital Schoolhouse team are running a creative writing competition, where we invite you to submit your character profiles and stories. The best ones will be published on our website!
