Whiteboard Comics

Every day I try and draw a "Today in History" comic on my classroom whiteboard.
Generally, I only have 20ish minutes to do it while I'm multitasking and doing a million other things to get the kids situated and start the day. 9 times out of 10, it's a rush job, and I later cringe at mistakes I don't see while I'm doing it in the moment. Poor draftsmanship being the most obvious. Not to mention, the occasional misspelling, poor grammar, incorrect data, a bad caricature and a million other things. I use photo reference when I can and wing it when I can't.
Here are a few to start the thread, I'll add more when I have time.

Crackin' stuff teach, like the Warsaw Ghetto one.

So is it a Sixth form Girls class and do you have pics of the netball team..... er for a mate.


you should photo these each day and put it on a blog, you will be surprised at the amount of interest you will get.
Brilliant. Your pupils are very lucky. Guaranteed they will remember you years from now.
Excellent stuff. The only thing I ever wrote on a whiteboard was Aresoles in the top left corner and fish? in the bottom right. Wish I'd had a history teacher like you.
They are brilliant, good work. My interest in history was helped no end by an inspiring history teacher, you will be creating a fair few future historians with those comics. Very good effort sir.
