10 Ideas for using Google Draw

Google Draw often gets overlooked as a collaboration tool. All of the following ideas can easily be adapted to a single student or groups of students working together. Drawings can be shared and assigned just like any other Google tool. All of the comments in the samples below are mine, but imagine them being done by different students. Comments don't appear in the previews below you will have to open the actual drawing to see samples of the comments. Special thanks to @jcalvert4 for tuning me into using Google Drawing in the classroom
