Sample Newspaper Activity
Editorial cartoons use art to state opinions. Find one in the paper and decide what is the point of the cartoon. Then draw an editorial cartoon of your own about a freedom that is important to you. Think about what you want to say about that freedom. Cartoonists sometimes use animals to represent different ideas. Is there an animal that would be a good symbol of freedom to you?

Sponsor Suggestion
