cartoon strip sequencing of plot

we just read Why Monkeys Live in Tress 
an African Folk Tale retold by Julius Lester...

the students created a cartoon strip sequencing the main
ideas of the story....

I cut 8 1/2 X 11 sheets of paper in half long ways 
and students folded it in half long ways first, then in half two 
more times to create 8 boxes...
before they began the activity they had to brainstorm the 
8 most important events as the plot progresses...


some students tried for the bare minimum but 
I showed cartoon strips and explained how 
great their work will look when they saturate the 
page in color...they loved it!
