Discover the world of Shapegrams, a tool for teaching students how to use Google Draw. Although only the first three Shapegrams are free, this site provides inspiration and tools for understanding Google Draw features and incorporating them into student-created drawings. Select one of the free drawings to begin. Choose to make a copy of the instructions, make a copy without YouTube, download QR codes, or download the video. Be sure to review the important tips for sharing with students that point out different options for use in Google Classroom, SeeSaw, and other learning management systems.

tag(s): drawing (74), Google (46)

In the Classroom

Take advantage of the free lessons and additional images found on the site to teach your students (and yourself) the many different features available with Google Draw. A new Shapegram is added each week, share the image with students, and challenge them to create it using their new skills. Ask students to create Shapegrams in a variety of ways throughout the curriculum. Enhance learning by having students draw a scene representing a moment in a story, create an emoticon to represent their understanding of math content, or make a drawing demonstrating a science experiment. Incorporate student drawings into digital projects. Include drawings in digital books created with Book Creator, reviewed here, upload and use in explainer videos created using Biteable, reviewed here, or save images as JPEG files and include in student-created games made with Scratch, reviewed here. As students create their own drawings, ask them to share with their peers by creating a screen recording using Free Screen Recorder Online, reviewed here. Share student recordings on your class website for others to view and try.

This recording of an OK2Ask online professional learning session from November 2019, opens in Adobe Connect. STEM is a necessary component in all classrooms today. As educators, we need to find ways to reach all students and help them to better understand the topics within STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math). In this session, we will share a few no-tech and low-tech STEM activities, for those educators with limited tech options or simply looking for a no-tech or low-tech STEM lesson. Management is key in any classroom, but when working in cooperative groups, it is imperative. During the session, we will reflect on the activity suggestions and discuss possible management concerns. Participants will: 1. Explore no-tech and low-tech STEM activities; 2. Understand the engineering design process; and 3. Plan for the integration of no and low-tech STEM activities in the classroom. This session is appropriate for teachers at all technology levels.

ArtsNow provides a large variety of resources for teaching and integrating art across the curriculum. Choose from Curriculum Guides, Modules, or Integrated Units to begin. Browse the Curriculum Guides by grade level or content. Download any guide in PDF format for a complete lesson overview including, correlation to National and Georgia state standards. This site also includes several integrated units for grades K-7. Download any unit for all unit resources including, activities, rubrics, and suggestions for differentiation. Choose modules for grades K-5 that integrate STEAM activities. Modules include a strong focus on integrating the arts with science concepts such as magnets and ecosystems.

tag(s): animals (323), art history (78), civil war (147), geometric shapes (171), maps (297), matter (65), seasons (37), STEM (213), stories and storytelling (34), temperature (35), weather (211)

In the Classroom

Take advantage of these free lesson plans and classroom activities to integrate art into your everyday classroom activities. Consider coordinating lessons with your school's art and music teachers. Expand upon the ideas found on this site to bring other art forms into the lessons. For example, take advantage of poetry resources and interactives found at ReadWriteThink, reviewed here, and have students create diamante, acrostic, and haiku poems relating to your lessons. Enhance student learning further by asking students or groups of students to create webpages sharing their learning activities using a resource like Carrd, reviewed here. This very simple tool allows users to add images and text to create a beautiful website using the provided templates. Be sure to ask students to include a reflective writing piece describing their learning throughout your unit. Take learning to the highest level and ask students to design and create a series of podcasts using Anchor, reviewed here. Ask students to discuss their learning activities, and also hypothesize on different outcomes of experiments when changing elements or activities. For example, if creating a podcast discussing changes in matter, have students share their thoughts on how the room and outdoor temperature affects outcomes. What if they used juice instead of water? Would the change from ice to liquid take the same amount of time?

Pindex is Pinterest for educators. In addition to saving and curating resources, educator accounts offer educators the ability to assign boards to students along with quizzes. Create boards then add content by using the + button to add video, links, documents, images, and more. Use the site's search feature to find boards created by other users, then save any desired content to your account. Assign boards to students then track progress under the quiz feature. Students earn "Internet gold" awards as they complete assignments.

In the Classroom

Because Pindex is specifically for educators, this site makes it easier to find and save information for classroom use. Collaborate with other teachers in your building or subject area to create boards with teaching resources. Take advantage of Pindex's quiz feature to create boards for any topic and assess student learning. Use Pindex as part of flipped learning lessons or as a learning center. Extend learning after students complete quizzes using Synth, reviewed here, to have students discuss information shared on the site. Synth is similar to Twitter, but is an audio resource. Have students share a short audio response related to their learning, then Synth threads all student discussions to create a podcast to share.

This CurriConnects features books about artists and their style and by Caldecott winning authors who have unusual or beautiful layouts. Treat your students to the possibility of exploring color and its power to communicate feelings and ideas, that art can be in the eye of the beholder, finding art (and joy) in the shapes of nature, different ways to look at perspective, and much, much more! This thematic list includes fiction and nonfiction, interest and grade levels, ISBNs for ordering or searching, ESL levels and Lexiles (where available) to match with student independent reading levels to challenge, not to frustrate.

tag(s): artists (79), colors (77), drawing (74), perspective (12)

In the Classroom

This list will be a natural fit for anyone teaching art whether in elementary, middle, or high school. Use the books to introduce concepts in art and have students create digital sketchbooks about the styles and concepts they like. Replace the paper journal or sketchbook with one that can be accessed anywhere and never left behind. Use a digital "idea bin" collector like Padlet, reviewed here, that offers tools for creating columns to organizing information about the concepts learned and post ideas and photos. Be sure to share this list of CurriConnects books about art with parents on your teacher webpage.
