What makes a political cartoon work? Is it the humor? The moment? The satire? Introduce your young historians to the world of political cartoons and sharpen their critical thinking skills with this 11 slide power point which incorporates the use of old cartoons as examples and direction for utilizing modern cartoons to cement the learning. Six basic questions are included in the two day activity, but you can always add more. Cartoons are not included as you are encouraged to build up your own collection of recent relevant material for your own classes.
