Description

Use this Image Annotation Tool to enable your students to creatively comment on political cartoons, and to share their annotated creations. Encourage your students to create a caption, add thought and/or speech bubbles, and place concept labels and clip art stickers to reinforce or change the meaning of the cartoon. This activity is intended for use with CEE’s Medicare and the National Debt lesson, from our Understanding Fiscal Responsibility curriculum, but can also be used as a standalone activity. For more information on using the tool, please refer to our comprehensive instructions or quick start video.
