Objects that Represent Me 

Google drawings is perfect for getting students to make a collage of things that represent them.  A cool activity that you could do to start the year.

Interactive Map – Use drawing to create interactive maps. You can annotate the map and add hyperlinks to make it really come to life. Here is an example that I used with 9th graders with the Odyssey.

Making Graphics – For my blog, I used drawings to make my header. I can easily bring in images to the canvas and quickly download them. Best part, they are always in my drive.

Graphic Organizers- Sometimes google docs and other apps can get in the way of my thinking. Google drawing makes it easy to quickly create text boxes and other objects and move them with ease. Here is an example I used with a third grade class to frayer a character from the book, The One and Only Ivan.
