This is the image for the news article titled North Carolina SuperheroesIf you could make an action figure of a famous North Carolinian, who would you choose?  Andy Griffith, Samuel Prescott, Richard Gatling, and the Wright Brothers are a few of the individuals our 4th graders chose as superheroes. First, they researched historic North Carolinians: explorers, settlers, leaders, Native Americans, and others who contributed to the development of our state.Then, using  recycled materials,  they created a “toy” that represented their historic figure. Students came up with clever and descriptive names for their action figure and designed the packaging to provide details of the personal characteristics, background, and talent or “superpower” that made them famous. Students also designed two accessories that showed what helped their historical figure do their good deeds. They did a superhero, creative job! SSS
