- Scavenger hunt looking for teaching ideas with Google Drawings
1. Explore Google Drawings
2. Comparing Google Drawings
Students will work in teams to develop comparisons of Google Drawings with Google Slides and Google Jamboard.
Step 1: Develop a graphic comparison of the features of 3 apps (what they can / can’t do). Use one of the 3 apps and be prepared to share.
Step 2: Go back to two Jamboard lessons from last week and show how they could have been done using Google Slides and another Google Drawings. Try to find examples that demonstrate strengths and weaknesses of apps.
3. Google Drawing Scavenger hunt

Curate your examples on a Pinterest of your own design and then share the URL with the instructor for posting below.
