Google Drawings is a great way to create different worksheets, notebooks or layered images in a document. It allows the user to layer images, create word art, and arrange objects.
Some interesting things to note:
- Google Drawings is its own program; Google Docs has an option to add a drawing with many of the same features
- To add a Google Drawing (created in Drawing) to a Doc, click edit and choose the Web Clipboard. Choose Copy the entire drawing. Open Docs, reopen the web clipboard (as in Drawings) and then choose the Drawing instead of copy.
- Create Newsletters with a banner and text boxes
- Create thinking maps that students can fill in
- Share a copy of a thinking map with each student and let them drag text from a word bank
