Ideas for using this in your classroom:

  • Graphic organizers 
  • Sketching stories

Autodraw gave me quite a few suggestions, with three of them much more Eiffel Tower-looking than my original rocket ship/elf hat version. 

Visit Autodraw.com to try it out, or watch the overview video below for more information.
