I have found that giving them this document really helps them to complete the task well. Of course you can change it to fit your needs. It can be for homework or classwork.

I am always amused to review their work, and normally pleasantly surprised with how much thought has gone into their drawings and choice of captions. Here is an example of the same activity done on a different passage:
