The Superheroes during the Cold War

It’s the end of the year and time to apply what we learned into a 5th grade favorite- comic books!  The new release of Avengers:  Infinity War, has my students eager to read more.  How can that be a bad thing, right? So, imagine my excitement when I found these treasure boxes full of clearance comic books!  Students compared and contrasted comic books and chapter books, then began creating a plot based on the Cold War.  Students earned infinity stones by including a superhero and supervillain,  vocabulary words from social studies, and elements of art in the design.  The result was 21 fabulous comic books shared by 21 amazing authors!
