Animal Camouflage Comic Strip Project

Students Create a Comic about Animal Camouflage

Students will research animal camouflage facts and use several images to create a simple one page comic strip.

The program used here is Comic Life Deluxe.

The students will use information about camouflage taught in class, found in their books, and on the internet.

Students will locate and use images of different animal camouflage types such as mimicry, disruptive coloration, concealing coloration and disguise for their comic.

Grade 2 - 3
