With the release of Incredibles 2 and Ant-Man and the Wasp this summer, many of us are heading back to school with superheroes on the brain (and wishing we had some time-stopping powers—or at least a red cape—of our own). Kick off your year with a superhero classroom theme that will inspire you and your students to combat the kryptonite of lesson plans and assignments coming your way.
Just a heads up, WeAreTeachers may collect a share of sales from the links on this page. We only recommend items our team loves!
