Kids 3 panel comic game

I had each of the kids draw the first box in a three panel comic. They were then mixed up randomly and they had to build on the characters and plot of the previous square until there were three finished boxes. A fourth kid read the comic and gave it an appropriate title. Here is what my youth ages 9 - 12 created.

Kids comics and zoo maps

I created a bunch of fun drawing activities for the kids cartooning classes the first being a follow along comic creation, starting with a random establishing shot, wide, medium, cowboy or over the shoulder, close up and then go back and add narration, thought and speech bubbles and allow the story to develop organically.

We also worked on backgrounds and scenery and I had them design a map for their perfect imagined zoo, some even have fantasy creatures and dinosaurs.
