Bring humor into your own writing! Writers consider how professional authors create humor in their writing. They read and analyze comic strips and poetry to determine the devices used by writers to create humor. Some of the examples aren't particularly hilarious, so you might want to supplement them with additional examples.
Fourth graders comprehend the differences between political parties and some of the key issues brought up in political debates (health care, social securtiy, military, education, etc). They view a comic and students write down what they think the comic is trying to say. Students work with a partner and review who the comic is about and they determine when the comic is set.
For this language arts lesson, students listen to the book "Many Luscious Lollipops," in order to become familiar with adjectives. Students create four comic strip squares, using five adjectives in each square, after hearing the book. Each student reads their comic to the class upon completion. Solid lesson!
Universal themes found throughout the world in the form of stories is the topic of today's lesson. Upper graders analyze the cultural context of the Mithila piece, Hanuman. They consider the universal themes the image depicts and how the image is a representation of traditional Hindu tales. They then create a comic strip that retells the story of Hanuman.
