English everyday – British history

In the UK, we’re surrounded by our history, from the building and towns we live in, to our accents, vocabulary and even spelling.

One of my young students loves reading history comic books (maybe this is just a Japanese thing) but she knows a lot about Japanese history now. I thought I’d see if I could make a comic for a story from British history.

So, I found some fantastic software at Storyboardthat.com. Here is my effort to tell the story of King Henry VIII and his six wives, in only six pictures!

Here’s your challenge: you can use the software at Storyboardthat.com for free, can you tell me a story from history, either from the UK or your country, in just six pictures?

Please send me your stories and I’ll share them here!
