Happy New Year, everyone!
This month, we challenged the children to design their comics around narration.
For a simple starter activity, we got everyone to draw:
- something you play with
- something you wear and
- something you eat
They then had to use one or more of these things as inspiration for characters.
The children then had to design a story around these characters, using these blank comic templates with thought/narration bubbles on them to help guide their story and move the action forward.
We had some fantastic ideas, from a Super Elf to a Cabbage Patch kid who could shoot cabbages out of their hands, cat-dragons and computer monsters. Check some out:
