Spatial Activity:
You are going to create a comic strip that teaches your audience about the how an ecosystem has been harmed by humans. In the comic strip, you must create a solution to this problem. Teach your audience how they can protect this environment. Have fun creating your characters and developing your plot by using the Comic Creator program at Read, Write, Think, but don't forget the purpose. Print your comic strip when you are done so that I can read your creative work. Good Luck!
