12 Days Before Christmas Break (#6) - Google Drawings Design

Google Drawings is one of the most flexible tools in the G Suite arsenal, but it's also one of the most underutilized! You can use Google Drawings to make your own FREE worksheets & handouts, and students can also use Google Drawings to create posters and infographics (giving you a good alternative to the typical student project tools like Google Slides or PowerPoint).
This Christmas Tree video teaches students how to group objects, rotate, flip, format, use shapes, text box, and color options, as well as search fonts, and hyperlink objects. You can make a copy of the video, or download and then re-upload it into your drive, to assign it to students.
If you like this project check out Tony Vincent's Shapegrams website. He offers over 35 different Google Drawing projects similar to the Christmas tree one for $35/year (with the first three free). I've seen several classrooms use it and the students LOVE it.
