Google Draw

One of the things I’m enjoying about the Google Apps environment in my classroom is that kids just find ways of doing things without you teaching them. Mine have been creating illustrations and brainstorms using Google Draw so I thought I’d better experiment a bit with it.

I read a post about some software available for schools/kids to use that looked interesting until I saw the price. There was one specific example that I wanted to try out (creating a colorful poster of related words) so I decided to see if I could do the same thing in Google Draw.

Here’s my result:

I used a photo I’d taken myself as the background and didn’t do too much tweaking of font type apart from size and color. I’m happy with the result and can see how the kids can use it to create word posters of their own. (Rugby comes to mind as a topic!)
