Story Camp 11&12 Year Olds - Mask Madness

After a morning of “Superhero & Villian” (our week’s adaptation of “Cat & Mouse”) we had a day of real-life heroes.  Read Aloud was short stories on three African-American heroes and our writing project was a brainstorm of what qualities a real-life hero possesses.  The highlight of the day was making masks with qualities the campers felt a hero had.  Many of the campers took this incentive to glue qualities onto their masks that described themselves and what made them a hero.  Who a combination of art supplies, coloring materials, and magazine words and letters, the campers really loved putting together a mask version of  their heroic selves.
