We just finished wrapping up the week with our awesome Comic Books we made. The lesson was inspired by a simple card game called Pick and Draw. There is a link on my website that will lead you to more information about Pick and Draw and also an opportunity for you to purchase a deck.
The game is simple. There are cards with pictures of faces, mouths, eyes, hair, and noses. Each student or pairs of students get a card from each category and they are to draw what is on the card. There are so many varieties to make a character and so each student is so excited to see what the next card holds.
It was interesting to see that my most quietest students came to life, and I have NEVER heard them talk as much in class like they did for the comic book lesson.
