Cartoons for The Classroom is another useful resource of educational cartoons to use with your students in this new school year. This service is provided by the Association of American Editorial Cartoonists. Cartoons for the Classroom is supported by the works of individual cartoonists and offers hundreds of lesson plans based on editorial political cartoons.

The major theme of the cartoons you will find in Cartoons for the Classroom is around the current political and economic events but there are also time-independent cartoons shared by volunteers from all around the globe. The lesson plans that are provided in this website are all available for free download in PDF format.

The site also offers teachers a  two-page Cartoon Evaluation Worksheet for use by  students in class. This is a good way for you to monitor your students comprehension  of the cartoons being used in the classroom. Here is a snapshot of the first page of this worksheet.
