FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON - “Free Back to School Beginning of the Year Caricature Icebreaker Activity”
by Tracee Orman 8th - 12th Grade
Create a Caricature, South-Park Style: Most high school students are familiar with South Park or at least the style of cartoon character from the popular Comedy Central show. This online activity uses a website for students to create original caricatures of themselves using that drawing style.
This is a perfect activity for laptop/iPad 1:1 schools. However, I do include a planning worksheet and printable template that allows students to draw their own figure if using the internet is not possible. Teacher & student directions are also included.
*Go Paperless: This activity has a link to a Google Docs template that you can share with your students!*
Please note: Maturity is a factor with this exercise since the figures are nude to begin with. Use your own discretion for what is appropriate with your class.
