Using Humor

With twenty minutes left in geography class and a big test tomorrow, I had the kids create comic strips! We're covering Russia so I suggested perhaps Uncle Sam and Mother Russia in a boxing match. They didn't like that idea. Then after a few more failed attempts at geography humor I had a moment of inspiration. Here's the comic as they interpreted it:
In case you can't read the text:
Singer: I'm in Europe!
Cowboy: I'm in Asia!
Alien: Well, it depends on what side Ural on! 
We used MakeBeliefsComix.com, it's a nice site with enough for them to be creative without becoming overwhelmed with choices.
