This is a collection of cartooning images that I put together for my students. Although I re-drew all the elements, so they are not originally mine; because of this I am offering it for free.
These designs allow the students to create characters by choosing different elements and tracing them. They can use tracing paper or a normal white sheet on top of the images to trace over them.
I originally used this activity for students to create "WANTED" posters for their characters and practice descriptions; the students had to present their characters and describe them to their classmates. Because of the success of the activities, I also used for making stories, families, etc.
The students will need at least two classes to make their designs and descriptions, which can be shortened by assigning some of it as homework.
This activity is successful for all ages.
