Using ToonDoo in the ClassroomActivity 3: As a class, make a comic book. Start with a very general story line, and allow

each student to take a turn developing the plot.

Have students work together to revise the story for correct language use.

Once the story is finished, it can be read to the class and/or used platform for developing other activities.
