Make A Comic Strip: Sequencing

Need a new and different idea for project based learning for sequencing or time order? Go beyond worksheets and have students create a comic strip and demonstrate higher order thinking. Two sites that are particularly easy to manipulate and complete in a time intensive pacing environment:

THINKFINITY:
Lesson plans and the link to creating a comic strip page are here. Ideas are given on the jump page and suggestions, and once you are ready, students can make their comic. Suggestion: Save this page on the H drive and save yourself some time from having students type in the URL.

PROFESSOR GARFIELD:
Similar to above, but Professor Garfield has more color and of course, has Garfield in as the main character. To try it out, click here.
