Jigsaw Planet has lots of pictures that become jigsaw puzzles when you click on them. You can also upload your own picture and turn it into a jigsaw puzzle. You can share them and embed them in websites. This can be used as a grouping activity, a way to introduce your lesson, and a way to review. Please ask me for ideas! http://www.jigsawplanet.com/

Make Beliefs Comix helps students create their own comic strips. Comics can be printed or e-mailed. There is no saving on this site, so make sure to print or e-mail before leaving the site.
Another site for comics/cartoons is
http://www.xtranormal.com. This site allows students to create 3-D cartoons complete with audio, movement, and camera angles. All students have to do is type, click and drag. They call it "Text-to-Movie.” No special equipment other than a computer is necessary. You can save your movies and publish them to share with others.
Try Madlibber.com! Students are given a list of words that they must choose (adj, verbs, nouns, adverbs, etc.), and then they get to see the story that they created. BUT, it doesn't end there! Students can also create their own stories for others to complete. This makes it more adaptable to all subject areas. Students could create a math or history story, leaving blanks for different vocabulary terms.
Glogster allows you or your students to create a digital poster using your pictures and videos. You have to join, but it's free. It has lots of fun layouts and themes to customize your posters (e.g. stickers and animations). You could use a Glogster poster on your wiki. Students can create glogsters to demonstrate knowledge of content.
