The Superhero Powtoon Winners 2014-15

The Superhero Powtoon Winners 2014-15

Author: Janice Davis

Create a Powtoon video that captures the essence of argument writing (in short video) using a claim, reasons, evidence, elaboration, and a strong conclusion.

Students were given the task of creating a short Powtoon video arguing which superpower would be the very best to have, if you could only have one.  After selecting our top 20 from 100, we asked a third-grade class to help us select the five overall winners.  A tie ended up giving us six amazing winning videos.  Check these out and see what you think.  Did they capture your attention?  Have they proven their claim above all others?  Don't you wish you had a superpower now?
