Fun with the Funnies: 50 Motivating Activities for Language Arts, Writing, and Social Studies, Grades 4-6. Good Year Book in Language Arts and Reading.
Noting that the newspaper is a relevant, comprehensible, up-to-date, inexpensive, and motivating classroom resource, this book contains 50 comic strip activity sheets, specifically for students with low motivation. Each activity has a clearly defined objective stated in question form. When possible, the activities are sequenced by level of difficulty. The activities are organized into two basic topic areas: (1) language arts/creative writing, and (2) current events/human behavior. (HTH)
