Google Drawings Basics- Grand Finale Student Examples and YOUR SLIDES ARE HERE!
We finally made it to the end of this Google Drawings Basics Series but hopefully, it was worth the wait for you! I can’t believe that it has been over three months in the making! I have included the link to my collection of completed slides – Google Drawings Slides for this series for you to share with your class along with many added bonuses that ARE NOT included in this series of blog posts.
This Table of Contents breaks down 7 days of instruction for you. In my class, we go over the lesson together and then the kids practice those skills on their own. Most lessons have a brief 2-3 minute instructional video.
Thank you for your patience. I have received so many awesome emails of encouragement from you to continue providing these user-friendly resources, so thank you for the incredible feedback and please share with others on your Instagram, Twitter or Facebook groups. If you have missed any of my posts in this series, I suggest that you begin with my introductory post – New Google Basic Series- Using Google Drawings For Creative Content Projects.
What Can Students Create With Google Drawings?
The above infographic was obviously created using Google Drawings and includes a few of my favorite student work samples. I do have more student examples to show your students in the “Google Drawings Basics For Kids” Slides in hopes that they are inspired to use Drawings in more creative and academics ways.
Here is a quick video of how I made the Word Web project shown in the infographic above: (Remember all content, including these videos, are included in the “Google Drawings Basics For Kids Slides”.)
I have had MANY requests to show you how to create this tye-dye background: (My students’ very favorite thing to do!)
