This activity is a great one that I enjoy using in class. Analyzing political cartoons is an important historical skill and this activity helps students practice doing so.
I run this activity as a group activity where the political cartoons rotate from group to group and walk around as the students discuss what the cartoons message is. This is a skill that a lot of my students struggle with and this activity helps them break down the different skills needed to analyze political cartoons.
I hope this activity is helpful to you!
