Comics in the classroom!

Are you new to using comics for learning, introducing comics in the classroom for the first time or would you like a brief reminder of What makes a Comic? We’ve got you covered! Each activity pack comes with a make-it-yourself Comic Zine Template (with fold-it-yourself instructions!)

This task is an excellent tool for starting a project, or great as a stand-alone activity.

Print A3 size for best results.



Pupils will explore the past and present through investigating World War I references, focussing on the history and symbolism of the Remembrance Day poppy, and consider what imagery would be both poignant and relevant to modern day society.

Taking inspiration and visual reference from Mikiko’s comic Crimson, pupils will respond by designing and creating their own four panel Comic.
