Some people have become famous all around the world because they took or are right now taking a stand on important topics like the climate change, human rights or freedom to help other people lead a better life on our planet. Examples for these people are Mahatma Ghandi, Greta Thunberg, Martin Luther King or Rosa Parks. But there are also real superheroes in your neighbourhood or family, like firefighters, nurses, doctors or people who help poor or sick people without getting paid for their help.

Show the world who your superhero is and which superpowers he or she has by creating a video presentation about your hero.
Step 1: Search the Internet to collect information about your superhero. If your superhero is someone who can't be found on the Internet, find other ways to collect information about him or her, for example by interviewing people who have valuable information about your hero.
Step 2: Create a mindmap for your video presentation in which you answer the following questions:
  • Who is your superhero?
  • Personal details, for example date of birth, date of death, where did he or she come from, family members, where and how did he or she grew up, school years, which jobs did he or she learn, etc.?
  • Who or what does/did your superhero fight for? For example poor people, sick people, the climate, animals, etc.
  • What are your superhero's special powers? What makes him or her so special? Which abilities are the strongest? For example, some superheroes fought for other people without using violence. Some superheroes help sick people without complaining about their hard work, etc.
  • What makes your superhero so special to you? Why did you choose him or her as your personal superhero? Add your personal opinion here.
