Assessment resource Manga maker: robot dog: assessment

TLF ID L9966

Explore elements of manga comics such as story-lines, characters, colours, text and bubbles. Then choose the dialogue and 'sound words' to complete a story about a postman's encounter with a robot dog. For example, choose the sound word to match the sound of a dog barking. Add your own text to the last frame of the manga to complete the story. View and print out an assessment report. This assessment object is one in a series of four objects.
