Creating Animated Comic Strips with Google Sites and Scratch Coding

Creating Dialogue between Characters:
To create a Comic Strip/Graphic Story you will need to know how to create a dialogue between sprites in Scratch.

Creating Static Panels:
Once you have set up some characters with a background setting, take screenshots of the characters with different speech bubbles to tell your story. 

Create a Google Site for your comic: 
Insert a table sized for how many panels your comic will have.

Click on the "Settings" Gear Wheel and select "Edit Site Layout".
Customize the website width to about 80%.
