I spent such a fun week working with Mrs. Michaelson’s amazing students to create Super Marvel-ous Comics!
We used the Marvel create a comic generator and though it had some quirky side-effects – our saved .PDF’s didn’t look the same as what we had on our screen! Some of our backgrounds disappeared and some had extra speech bubbles that I swear weren’t there when we saved them! Maybe we should have just taken screen shots??
We had time after the comic creating & we watched & danced to the latest craze UMD Gangnam Style!
