Create your own comics

Here’s a fun activity for you and your kids. It is called Comic Creator and is from readwritethink.org created by Thinkfinity/Verizon Foundation.  The Comic Creator invites children and teens to design their own comic strips. Their creations can be just for fun or as part of more structural learning activities: planning writing activities, before – and after – reading activities, and responding to books.

How it works: Children and teens create comic strips online by choosing backgrounds, characters, and props. They can also write dialogue using speech bubbles. There is a Comic Strip Planning Sheet, a printable PDF that comic creators can use to draft and revise their work before creating and printing their final comics. When the comics are completed, they can be printed out and shared.
