…everybody could fold their own template or paste into their own book at minimum cost/time then write up their understanding/memory of the previous lesson…

Children’s drawings when captured digitally can be taken to the next level using such software as sketchup

Here the template is taken into sketchup ( it’s free and easily available to all as a download )…

Just for fun here are some things you could experiment with on drawings such as these…

After taking the drawing into sketchup you can draw into and extrude the image directly in 3d space…

The textures can be projected onto terrain mapping using the sandbox tools – drape and stamp for instance…

Add the ‘Millenium Falcon’ from the warehouse of sketchup and you can have drawings turning into stage sets…
