Political cartoonists are the bravest of journalists. When prodded, they can simply say that it is "only a cartoon." But, the truth they often wield can cut through any issue or bombast of rhetoric. This set of three pairings of cartoons is designed for pairs or small groups, and will have young historians analyze, compare and contrast through thought provoking questions which are provided. Discussion and revelation occur AFTER the activity, which will encourage the written word as well as oral responses. The images used are all in the public domain, and if this 13 slide Power Point activity is done early in the year, references to the cartoons can be made throughout the entire course.
