Google Drawings as a Bonus Activity

I offered students the opportunity for bonus marks if they create a character/picture using shapes in Google Drawings.  I was really impressed with what they were able to create.  Here are a few student exemplars…

This is a fun activity that allows students to learn more about Google Drive Drawings while creating an amusing picture.

• Once students are done completing one of my Google Draw activities (Holiday Picture, Dinosaur, Minion, Pokemon etc.), they can create a picture of their choice.
• This resource some examples of what students created for this activity
• Note: these examples do not include step-by-step instructions like my other Google Draw activities.

My own experience with Google Classroom

Google Classroom helped me immensely to stay more organized.  All class materials are in one place.  Google creates a folder for each assignment and all submitted assignments are automatically placed in this folder to ease marking.  I can reuse assignments, tests and announcements to quickly recreate a course.  Create a test and use the Flubaroo add-on to mark it for you.  Finally, the site just looks good, the layout is appealing.  You can change the theme to suite your class.  It is professional while at the same time inviting to students.  Try it for yourself to take advantage of all of all these amazing features in your classroom.
