Ideas for how students could use comic strips:
- Students can illustrate a concept from class.
- Students can retell a story they have read in class. (Such as Flatland.)
- Re-enact famous scenes from math history.
- How they use math in a daily basis.
- Make a comic using vocab words for that week.
There are multiple links and one especially well done is a google hangout that I saw that creates comic strips using google docs. The link is here: https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/16goLqOmvMd1jh29dcIQ-kDk0fo8AFaihfa2FYZDHn2o/edit#slide=id.ge66c43f_0_7
An example of how they used comic strips in the classroom: https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/15ly-rM6zqSC_vh5Vw7oQmZibWvrwH6dN7skHWchn-VE/edit#slide=id.p
