Art and stories can be very effective in communicating new information. Several cartoonists have used comics to share science concepts including Jim Toomey with Sherman’s Lagoon, Gary Larson with the Farside and Jan Eliot with Stone Soup. Comic strips are an excellent way to learn, and to share information. The goal of this activity is to create a comic that shows the threat of this invasive species to the local ecosystem(s).
