It’s the end of the year and time to apply what we learned into a 5th grade favorite- comic books! The new release of Avengers: Infinity War, has my students eager to read more. How can that be a bad thing, right? So, imagine my excitement when I found these treasure boxes full of clearance comic books! Students compared and contrasted comic books and chapter books, then began creating a plot based on the Cold War. Students earned infinity stones by including a superhero and supervillain, vocabulary words from social studies, and elements of art in the design. The result was 21 fabulous comic books shared by 21 amazing authors!
