Create your own Comics and Cartoon strips with PikiKids

Pikikids allows users to create their own comics, they can select their own layout, upload their own photos, add speech bubbles and fun graphics and then save and share their work.

Students may use this to turn a class text into a scripted comic, add pictures to their procedural texts....recipes look better with photos! They could create a comic response to a shared reading or retell Romeo and Juliet as a cartoon. A bit more motivating than a book report and requires some higher order thinking skills.
