Question Of The Month: Arnold Elementary School


Each month, the Severna Park Voice poses a question to a local fifth-grade class. This month, students from Mrs. McMahon’s class at Arnold Elementary School answered the question:

If you could have a superpower, what would it be and why?

I would want to have the power to stop and rewind time. If a disaster happens and you saw it on the news later then I could have the ability to rewind and warn people or stop it from happening. Another reason I would want this power is because if you make a mistake then you can go back and fix it.
Alana S.

I would want to have the power to transform into Kirby, a video game character. One of the powers is that Kirby can consume any object and absorb the most useful strength. I could use this part of the power in different ways, such as eating a calculator and gaining the strength of instant calculation.
Anna H.

My superpower would be to talk to cats. I would want this superpower because I have a cat named Snowflake and I understand him a lot, but I’ve never really got to speak to my cat and fully understand him.
Austin M.

If I could have a superpower, it would be telekinesis because I could do so many things at the same time, and I could prank the people that prank me on April Fools’ even though they already know I hate being pranked.
Bea M.

If I could have a superpower, it would be omni-precognition, in other terms, seeing the future. This would help me and other people because I could see all the new things in the new world to help our present world in a positive way, and I would see all the lottery winning numbers so that I could help people (including myself) be super rich.
Beau G.

If I had a superpower, it would be life. If I had the power to create life (plants, animals, decomposers, cleaning pollution), it could help save our dying Earth. I could help/save the planet.
Bradley K.

If I could have a superpower, it would be teleportation. With the power of teleportation, I would never be late to things. I could also teleport to the ball in a soccer game. I could even throw a basketball off the backboard, then teleport up and dunk it in.
Bradley R.

My superpower would be to run at the speed of light at any time. I think this would be useful because when I play tag or fun running games, I would always win.
Brixton B.

I would choose pheromonal persuasion. This superpower enables me to control a person through the use of pheromones, which puts them in a near-mindless state, so whatever I tell them to do, they will do without question. With this superpower, I could get away with anything.
Elliana B.

I would have the power to shapeshift into animals. One reason is because then I could fly, climb, breathe underwater and do lots of other cool things in animal form. Another reason is because I could talk to animals.
Ellie F.

If I had any superpower in the world, I would have invisibility. I would pick invisibility because there are lots of ways I can protect people. If I had a superpower, I would only use it for good.
Ethan C.

I would want earth bending because I can make the earth a more beautiful place. I could create beautiful rock statues. I could even make stuff out of bushes.
Gabe H.

I would have the ability to teleport because it would mean extremely quick travel. Teleportation could save you car trips and plane flights and you would never be late to school. Teleportation could also save you in an emergency like a fire.
Hannah C.

If I could have a superpower, it would be telekinesis. I could grab a candy bar from 30 feet away and have no one notice! I also chose telekinesis because I can always win against my sister!
Kate H.

I would like to be able to stay up all night and not get tired. I want this because I could do more work, have more free time and have more time to study for upcoming tests. This superpower would also remedy everyday stresses such as not being able to do schoolwork because I have no time.
Lillian H.

If I could have a superpower, it would be the superpower to have any superpower because you could just do whatever you want whenever you want. For example, if you lived in Maryland and you wanted to go to California, you could just teleport, fly, run super fast, walk on water or E.C.T. Or if you were starving in the middle of social studies, math or science you could just make a Chipotle bowl appear out of thin air.
Lucas H.

Teleportation. By far. Teleportation would mean: No more plane flights or driving ever again. Believe me, this could save days of your life. Also, no more being late for school, no more mad dashes upstairs after turning off the basement lights and no more struggling to climb that one infuriating rock wall.
Nolan C.

If I had a superpower, it would be unlimited stamina. This superpower is cool because you can literally do anything and not get tired; that would give me a huge edge in soccer! Unlimited stamina would make me 1,000 times better at sports, P.E. and my whole life!
Oliver L.

I would choose a superpower that could help change the world that could make the environment better. The superpower that fits is talking to animals. If I could talk to animals, I would be able to understand how they felt about the environment.
Reese P.

I would want the power of time-traveling because I could fix my mistakes, and it could also make schoolwork easier.
Samantha H.

Flying is my choice, because it is very cool, and you don’t have to walk everywhere. Another reason why flying is my superpower I choose, because you can do anything you want.
Sanger R.
