Teacher Notes (not visible to students)

Drawings in Seesaw are preserved and provide evidence for students and teachers as they reflect on progress over time. In Seesaw, not only is it easy for teachers to see all of the students’ drawings in one place, but students can later use others’ drawings as a resource or a helpful study tool. This activity works great when your lesson asks students to sketch, work through a problem, or draw a diagram. To do this activity with students…. 1.
