Doodle 4 Google

From Sketches to the Google Homepage

To celebrate the 7th annual Doodle 4 Google competition, Discovery Education stopped by the Google Headquarters to meet with the Google Doodlers. During our visit, we created three videos and activity packs to introduce your K-12 classroom to the creative process. Explore these resources in your classroom then check out the virtual field trip where we introduce your students to brainstorming ideas, digital design tools, and more!
