Comic Book Cover

We all do self-portraits in Kindergarten, 1st grade, 2nd grade, 3rd grade, 4th grade, etc...
 the tricky part is coming up with a relevant projects that the kids will love.

This year my 6th graders were asked to create a self-portrait that challenged them to think about "what if they could be a super hero?"  They completed the following planning worksheet.
Then we looked at a lot of comic book covers.  They were given the task of creating a comic book cover for their superhero.  The guidelines said they had to have a title, a portrait of themselves and be colored neatly and completely.  We agreed that they would want a cover that "grabbed" someone's attention.  Then I handed out these blank covers... complete with barcodes and MSComic labels.  
They did a really neat job.  Not going to lie... some are a bit lacking but most of them were very impressive.  


  1. These are great! Do you ever offer your handouts for download? I'd love a copy if you do :)

    1. I agree! Great work and I'd love to download the handout.
