Know Before You Start: Students should be familiar with proportional quantities prior to this lesson. This lesson could be used as a formative assessment to gauge student understanding of proportional quantities.
Hook:
 Have students turn to a partner and explain how they know if two quantities are proportional. Share several responses to check for understanding.
Activity:

Have students choose one of the sample comic panels and respond to the following:

If they are proportional, explain and justify how you know.

If they are not proportional, explain and justify how you know and provide a number that would make the relationship proportional.

Use a caption at the top of you comic to denote which sample comic you are referring to (1 or 2).

 Have students create a comic explaining whether or not the two quantities in the sample they chose are proportional.
Closure:
 As a class, have students decide which sample comic panel is proportional and which is not.
Differentiation:
 Allow students to use the speechtotext feature.
