This is a project that can be adapted for any class. I originally created this project for my students when we were studying famous Mississippians. I edited it to be used for any famous/historical person. This packet includes the student instruction sheet, the research chart (30 facts documented), a story board handout (list 24 facts that student wants to use for comic book in the order in which they will appear), a presentation sheet (students list one fact for each person/comic book presented in class...helps students to pay attention during presentations...make multiple sheets for each student if you have a large class), a grading sheet (two possible choices depending on if you work on project in class or assign for outside of class), and a comic book template (must give each student a copy of the template with boxes on FRONT and BACK and one copy with boxes on just the front. This is a fun project that allows creativity by the students while at the same time enabling the teacher to cover many people/facts in a short time. It does require some research so internet access is needed if famous/historical people are not included in a textbook.
