The students were introduced to the basic steps of creating a comic strip. We projected comics from the LA Times newspaper, discussed brainstorming, and started our rough drafts. Students were given a prompt and created their comics. We will complete final drafts after the editing process and vote for the best comic to be put in the school newspaper.

Students were introduced to a new creative comic strip today. “Making wishes come true.” They were to continue their previous comics and teacher continued to give feedback, correct spelling, and suggest new ideas. Students used their imaginations and came up with new lands called “Video Game Land,” and “Aidenland.” Students also came up with made up characters such as “Fan Boy” who becomes a villain, and “Spider-Man” who fights animals.
