Recently revised to align with common core writing! In this activity students create a 9 scene storyboard for an animated film. The film should be about a flea-ridden rat who helps to spread the Bubonic Plague into Europe during the 1300s. An example page and an easy step by step how to draw a basic cartoon rat printable are both included.
I also have a power point posted that has some great visuals of the black death! Used with History Alive or Holt World History Textbook or after The Plague/Black Death Power point also posted.
This activity is fun. Common Core and easy to implement!
