Live Cartoons

Digital Camera Activity

Activity contributed by Melissa Morley of Ranier High School, Ranier, WA.


Students will use cartoons to assist in understanding key vocabulary.


Students create 4-8 panel cartoons of interactions using paper and pencil. When completed, students will role play each panel. The role play can be digitally captured by taking digital pictures of students playing the characters in the cartoon.

Captions can be added, in Spanish (or any language), using Adobe Deluxe. The images can then be uploaded to a television showing a frame by frame cartoon presentation or the entire cartoon at once.

This will reinforce vocabulary in the target language.
