Learning through the Funnies

Are you or your students a fan of the Sunday funnies?  Check out Comic Life for a new way to engage your students with curriculum content.  As I started playing with Comic Life I found an amazing collection of science resources created by students.  I also found a wonderful collection of templates that help get you started.  With the great collection of images correlated to curriculum units within Discovery Education Science get a trial of Comic Life and give it a try.

    Comic Life would be a great resource to use with your students, even at my elementary level. Students would be highly engaged in activities utilizing this link. Thanks for the resource.

    This is a great resource that I think would have my students really engaged. I have been looking for new ideas to help with my science curriculum and this is perfect. Thanks, my fourth graders will love this.

    My Tech Teacher’s team has been encouraging colleagues to use Comic Life in Language and Social Science, but I love the idea of using it for Science, especially Monarch Butterfly studies.
    Imagine gathering series of Life Cycle posters created using Comic Life and using them as samples and digital displays.

    This looks like a great way to engage students in active learning. I’m just wondering how difficult it is to learn the interface? Can younger children use this with ease?

    I would say a Grade 4 and up could probably handled the CL interface given classroom instruction
