As a Social Studies teacher I love Political Cartoons and I know that students love Comics. Bubblr is a great tool for teachers that allows students to create their own. By having students use Bubblr they can search pictures to create either a comic strip or even just some sort of political cartoon. It is very easy to use and it would not be too difficult for students to accomplish. I created a model political cartoon on Andrew Jackson. What I would see my students doing is create some sort of commentary on a historical figure. I did an example of Andrew Jackson, asking how important is he? I also bring up important issues of his Presidency. I would want my students to do the same. Another option is they could find a picture of Native Americans and express their thoughts on Andrew Jackson or American in general.
