Fifth graders get a document based social studies test in November. Understanding political cartoons is one of the components. Here's a dbq slide show on cartoons. The first four slides give some tips on how to understand them, but I don't think that will work-you just have to be aware of the contexts that cartoons deal with and that involves teaching content. The one above is some semi original work that could have been a New Orleans' Daily News City headline.
