Superhelden

Stel je voor... je moeder zit in de gevangenis, maar je weet zeker dat ze onschuldig is. De gevangenis  staat op een streng bewaakt eilandje in de Waddenzee. En aan je vader heb je niks, want die zit van de stress de hele dag te gamen. Wat doe je dan?

Dan bedenk je een onwaarschijnlijk reddingsplan!

Het laatste thema gaat over superhelden. Niet alleen die van de tv, met capes en superkrachten, maar juist de helden onder ons. Wat maakt jou een held? Ken je een held in de familie? Hoe kun je een held worden?

Deze week werken we verder aan onze dagboekfragmenten. Ook starten we met het ontwerpen van een goede ‘Superheld WervingsPoster’ en de ‘Superhelden Academie Folder’.
