I let my students make comic strips about peer pressure situations and different ways to say no to them.

I let the kids use makebeliefscomix.com or readwritethink.org. They really enjoyed the activity. I suggest making an example comic strip for them to look at from each site you use before you let them do it.

For some reason, not all computers would access makebeliefscomix.com, so I would suggest using at least one other site.

The comic strip can be as simple as one character explaining a concept to another. They don't to be "roll-on-the-floor-laughing" comic strips.

I need some help. In 2 weeks I am going to begin reading "A Christmas Carol." I would love to create comic strips about Scrooge and many of the other characters. I would like the strips to be based on personality traits as well as "students raising their voices" about issues dealing with greed, hatred, love, family, etc. Any suggestions?
