Collaborative Graphic Novels
using Google Docs and KidPix
Collaborative Group Work that Rocks
For this activity students create meaningful summaries and combine them with original drawings to create graphic novels. Student groups of 3-5 use KidPix Deluxe to illustrate pre-determined scenes from their reading. These images are exported as a jpg file, uploaded to a shared Google Doc folder, then assembled in a presentation by all members of the group. Once a slide is complete, groups share the slide with another group who is then responsible for proofreading and commenting on the thoroughness of the summary and clarity of the drawings.
