This project is designed to tap into the boundless ingenuity of 5th Graders and the boundless imaginations of 1st Graders. It was inspired by Axe Cop
: a web comic written by a 5 year old, and drawn by his 29 year old brother.
- Your story will star 3 characters: an elf, a snowman, and a reindeer. Ask your 1st Grade buddy to make up a story with these characters. Take notes on his or her ideas, and ask questions to flesh out the story.
- Type out all your notes on Text Edit. Make sure they're written out as a story in paragraph form.
- Using comic life, start creating a comic version of the story. You can get your images from three sources:
- Internet pictures
- Your own photographs (captured in comic life)
- Drawings made in Pixie (or any other drawing program)
- When finished, export your comic as a PDF file. Name it <Your Number> <Your Name> Christmas Comic. Example: 00 Michael Dreyfus Christmas Comic
- Email it to Mr. Dreyfus (email@example.com) as an attachment.
