Animal Antics is an EcoKids comic strip about the “antics” of Canadian wildlife. Xalibu the Pawer is all about the barren-ground caribou. The name caribou likely came from the Micmac word “xalibu,” which means "the one who paws."
Our illustrator has drawn a series of pictures showing a herd of barren-ground caribou throughout the seasons, starting in winter. Each picture represents different caribou behaviour. But the comic strip is missing one very important element—the captions! So we need your help!
You can help by writing the words to go along with the pictures.
Click on the empty space then type in your caption. When the space for the caption is full you will not be able to type in any more words.
Click on the “Next” and “Back” buttons to complete the whole comic or move ahead to see all the pictures before you start.
When you are done you can print out your comic. It's easy, just click on the printer icon at the end of the comic.
To help you write the captions for “Xalibu,” EcoKids has put together a Barren-ground Caribou Fact Sheet to give you some basic information and interesting facts.
Colour in your comic. Hang it on your fridge, or in your classroom at school and encourage your friends and family to write their own Xalibu the Pawer comic.
