Sample lesson plan:

“U Can Draw Cartoons”

A step-by-step lesson during which the students draw a family of characters based on the letter U that can be expanded to a comic strip lesson for students second grade and above.

The students will learn the basics of cartoon character development. They will learn body proportions, expressions, and movement.

In the comic strip lesson they will learn how to break down the joke of the strip and how to draw it out in three to four panels. They will learn about using a pencil to do the rough drawing and a fine line permanent marker to do the finish work and how to erase the final product.
