The Life of Buddha Comic Strip Project

Mr. McGinty's first attempt at creating a digital comic strip panel using ToonDoo.

Today's Learning Objective  Know the life and moral teachings of the Buddha. 

The Life Buddha Comic Strip Project  Today you will begin working on creating a comic strip of focused on the Buddha, as a way of demonstrating what you have learned so far about his life and teachings. Before you can begin working on your comic strip, however, you must complete your Buddha Comic Strip Story Board, which is located in your Social Studies Google Classroom. Once you have your comic planned out, you have a choice of whether to create a comic strip digitally using ToonDoo or drawing and designing one in the classic style using paper and colored pencils and markers. However, due to this technical issues that many of you were experiencing with TooDoo yesterday, I am going to strongly recommend that you design your comic strip by hand.

Whether you creating your comic digitally or classically with paper, you still must follow the same basic guidelines. The Life of Buddha Comic Strip Rubric (which can also be found in your Social Studies Google Classroom) explains the various criteria you must meet in order for your comic to be considered 'Proficient' work. 


Below you can find an example panel of a student who chose to make his comic by hand.

Whether you are doing your comic by hand or digitally, please let me know how I can support you. A completed 'Life of Buddha Comic Strip' will be due on Friday, March 4.
