It is a free 30 day trial. You will need to type in each child’s first name and they will be given an access code so they can save their work. When they submit their comic, it will come to you for approval before it will be visible to the class for them to comment, so make sure you use a valid address. You can save the comics as a PDF and print them out if you would like to keep them before your 30 day trial ends.Bitstrips -For Makebeliefscomix students can create more than one comic if they need more frames. Students can’t save, but can print or use the snipping tool to save. Students need to finish their comic in one period or will have to recreate their comic the next class in order to complete it.Makebeliefscomix -Consider showing this Teacher Tube Video 0:00-4:23 is about Realism.
