I use this activity to help my students further develop their critical thinking skills as they have to analyze several political cartoons over the different type of trade barriers.
This power point can be changed to whatever content you are teaching in which you want your students to analyze political cartoons. I have done this activity with elections, democrats versus republicans and historical events.
The basis of the power point demonstrates key vocabulary words, how to interpret the cartoons, as well as symbols cartoons incorporate to get their point across. At the end of the lesson students are asked to create their own political cartoon with their viewpoint of the material.
My students love doing these types of activities because they are challenging but also because it allows them to be creative!
I hope you enjoy this activity with your students as much as I have. Please rate this lesson if you purchase.
