Sometimes a picture says it all…
While using ComicLife is a powerful tool to create comics, sometimes what’s required is a tool that has its own built in media library. There are many out on the web to choose. The one above is from LearnEnglishKids by the British Council. A range of panels, backgrounds, characters and bubbles are provided for you to select. No registration is needed. More importantly, there is a download feature that allows you to publish anywhere or just print it. Another site that you may try is MakeBeliefsComix, which has similar features.
How would I use it? Try activities with a sequence; writing lesson on speaking and “thinking in head” using bubbles; post (fiction/non-fiction) reading build a summary or theme; science experiment sequence; 3-panel beginning-middle-end of story; newspaper editors column; reflection piece.
We would love to hear how you’re using comic strips. Please drop us a comment.
