Just what you need…
As a longtime (27+ years) world, U. S., or state history teacher, I am always looking for another way to get my students involved in the chapter or textbook. It is not matter what way I can involve them, ifr it is art or writing or computers, I just want them working and this is just another way to get them involved.
I don't grade them on their 'artistic' ability, only on their attempt to get their idea across to me and the others in the class; I have gotten some really great work over the years. Not great artwork but great 'work'. They really try as long as they KNOW I am not grading or their art ability.
There must not be 'stick figures'. They must put clothes on them – I don't want to get into trouble walking around with 'naked' artwork in my hands. Have them put gloves on them, a t-shirt and shorts or a skirt on the figure, put shoes and socks on them, plus put a hat on them if need be.
I did both a color and a Black & White version.
