Teaching Science:

Reproduce the comic on one side of a
sheet of paper and the questions on the
other. Use the Power Point
presentation to work through the first
comic with your class. Then let them work
in teams on the second one.

Teaching Reading/Writing:

Allow students to read the comics with
partners taking turns per frame. Encourage them to use expression as they read.
Then allow them to write the comic as
a story on a sheet of notebook paper.
The final draft should be 5 paragraphs: Introduction, Rising Action, Climax, Falling Action, Resolution.

Other Ideas:

- Laminate for Reading Centers.

change the dialogue.
