You too can prevent bullying!
Here’s how: If you’re a New York State student in Kindergarten, Grade 1 or Grade 2, enter our contest and make your own anti-bullying three-panel comic strip from now until contest end on January 7, 2011. How do you do it? Easy! Cartoons can be created using TOON’s own carTOON MAKER and instructions for Comics Lab are conveniently found here on our website.
To get in the spirit, have a look at Benny and Penny in the Toy Breaker by 2010 Geisel Award-winner Geoffrey Hayes or use the free TOON Reader. But wait, there’s more! Teachers, for additional explanations and cartooning help, see our Toy Breaker lesson plan and activity sheet.
When your comic’s complete you can submit it here and wait for the winners to be announced on March 18, 2011 at the Celebration of Teaching & Learning. Prizes include one iPod Touch per grade level and a complete set of TOON Books per classroom! Now get cartooning!
