The Quick Draw game consists of a figure with a variety of embedded geometric shapes that students draw from memory. Rich in geometric vocabulary and spatial skills, this activity is a great way to start the day. Postscript items are designed as rich grab-and-go resources that any teacher can quickly incorporate into his or her classroom repertoire with little effort and maximum impact.
