Superhero Theme Activities and Investigation Stations

Saturday, August 12, 2017

Ariana was so excited to start our new theme from Mother Goose Time this month. What could be more exciting than Superheroes.  I asked her about superheroes and what they do. She told me that they save people.

Ariana explored the Theme Poster to look for different types of superheroes. She found some dressed in costume, some community helpers and people being helpers. All being Superheroes.

Ariana chose for her superhero name to be SuperAna and was excited to practice writing it.
She loved having a Superhero name.
Ariana drew herself as a superhero on her journal cover. She said she was drawing a pink helmet to protect her head. She wrote her superhero name on the cover later.
Then came time to make her shield. She absolutely loved this project and the finished product. She loved the Glitter too! 
I use investigation station suggestions from Mother Goose Time in my science center, sensory center, dramatic play and art/creation center.

In the Shape Symbol photos above the activity is in Science Center. This is Magnetic Discovery and Fun with paper clips, wands and  a magnetic alphabet and above is another suggested activity - Super Blocks.

Other examples of Investigation Stations
Sensory- Playdoh , cutters, blocks and small items-invite children to make prints in dough

Dramatic Play-Set out sidewalk chalk and a squirt bottle filled with water outside-invite the children to draw on the concrete with chalk. Have them pretend to put out fires and squirt drawings with water.-Which superhero puts out fires?

Art/Creation-Creating a glasses case for a super hero using paper, scissors, tape, fabric and glue.The superhero needs to keep his or her glasses in a safe place. 

All of these activities are open ended and the children make many choices investigating, discovering, creating and more.

This month's theme is Superheroes at

I am so thankful for the opportunity to use Mother Goose Time Curriculum with my students. I can’t wait to share our learning experiences on my blog. In exchange for my unbiased and honest reviews, Mother Goose Time has provided us with the curriculum free of charge.
