Instructional Ideas

  • Before the video, have individuals list as many animal superpowers as they can think of and then trade papers with a classmate; as they watch the video, have them check off each one that was mentioned and give the person with the most checked a prize
  • After the video, challenge pupils to research an animal superpower not mentioned and offer bonus points if it isn't a spider

  • Remember the comment section on YouTube is open to the public and not typically appropriate for classroom display
Pros
