Creating Comics in Minecraft™ - Sat
Recommended for grades 3 to 6
Using Minecraft and a free photo-editing application called "Sketchpad", students will create comic books by taking screenshots from custom made scenes in Minecraft and use Gimp to create the pages and speech bubbles. Other classmates can act out various characters in each student's story. All comic book creations will be exported into PDF's to be read by others later using a computer, tablet, or phone.
