I think this is a fantastic way for students to learn onomatopoeia! I never had anything like this, or anything focused on onomatopoetic words, and I wish we did now. It could help students learn about the use of sound effects in illustrations and it can allow them to use their imaginations more.

I revised this lesson to fit my Senior Poetry class and I can't tell you how excited I am to read their comic strips! They were so involved in the activity and dove right in! Thanks for the idea about using comics to teach onomatopoeia!

Thank you so much for putting this online! My class and I are designing our own comics right now and I am really looking forward to teaching this lesson tomorrow!
