This week in Social Studies class students will be researching a battle from the American Revolution, and creating a comic strip about the battle. Students will use the Comic Life app on their iPads to create a comic strip about their battle. Below is an introduction to the week from me, as well as a video tutorial about how to use the Comic Life app! Students will watch both videos on Monday, February 23rd.
