      This is fantastic! I actually had my Spanish 1 students do a project last year where they used Pixton.com to create comic book characters and little comic strips where their characters describe themselves in Spanish. It was great practice and many students really enjoyed the creative aspect of it. Mixing visuals with vocabulary is a great way to help students to remember words, especially when they can link the vocabulary with an image that they created!
