Hey Joe, thanks for another great tutorial. I also used Word to differentiate this lesson for some students. They used photoshop to apply filters and then used Word to insert text boxes.

Thanks for posting this. I used to do a one page comic using digital images but the graphic novel would be more relevant to the students.

I'm always trying to raise awareness about the environment and make it relevant to my students. This looks like its fun to do and an effective way to it! Great idea! I'm definitely going to try this!
