Superhero Icebreaker Activity

By Betsy Marvin

There’s nothing quite like super powers to get the conversation going. Take a moment ahead of time and write each of these questions on the board or print them out on a sheet of paper. Instruct the students that they will be answering the questions and designing their own super hero logo. Give them a pool of shared art supplies and blank paper to get started on their logo. After five minutes, go around the room inviting each student to share their logo and answers to the questions.

  • What typical super power would you most like to have?
  • What typical superpower would you least like to have?
  • What is a superpower you have never heard of a fictional superhero having that you would like to have?
  • What would you call yourself with this atypical superpower?
