  2. Open the Jamboard and select the eraser tool from the toolbar on the left.
  3. Move the mouse over the blank page to reveal the colorful background as you draw or write words. If you have an iPad or computer touchscreen, you can also draw with your finger.

Each slide has an image uploaded into the background. The black cover “paper” was created by coloring over the entire slide with the black marker tool. And yes, it took a chunk of time to marker over the entire slide, which is why these Jamboards take longer to load.Once the students have their drawing completed, each slide drawing can be saved as an individual image. You can print them to display or include them in a portfolio of work.If you plan on using the activity more than once, it is recommended that you make and save several unused copies in your Google Drive.
