Pixton is a comic-making site where I can task students with creating their own comics or even group them together to collaborate on a comic project. In the past I've used it for...
- social studies unit on Olympics
- science unit on animals and habitats
- grammar lesson on verbs
- math lesson using UPSL format - Understand, Plan, Solve, Look back and explain
- and of course...free writing time
Once I've approved a comic it's available for all my students to view in the gallery. They can browse their peers' comics, rate them and leave comments. We talk about the importance of being respectful and "filling buckets" online.
