The Game kids love to play

Students already enjoy playing Drawize - Draw and Guess, and often play it with friends in school.

Since drawing and doodling are some of the rare activities proven to boost memory and improve focus (read more), we are really glad our game can help make kids interested in drawing.

We encourage teachers to use Drawize in the Classroom - it can help engage students and make learning really fun for everyone!

Learn by playing

Students are more likely to remember what is learned if they actively participate in the class, and playing a game is a great way to make them actively involved.

Drawize can be used for different subjects, including foreign languages and vocabulary practicing, and it is a great activity for the blended learning approach. It works great both for online or in-classroom teaching when all students have an online device.

How to play drawing game in the Classroom

The teacher can use our Friends room feature, in combination with custom words.

  1. Click play with friends
  2. Click create a new room - room will be created
  3. Click the gear icon next to your room code - this will open room settings
  4. Enable Custom words for your room, and enter words related to the topic you are working on. For example:
    • Vocabulary list for Language class
    • Animals you were talking about in nature class
    • List of internal organs when teaching human anatomy
    • Math terms or formulas in science classes
  5. Share room code with your students and start having fun
  6. The game will automatically select a different student to be an artist for each round.

Is it possible to play without ads?

Yes, many teachers asked us for a solution to play in a private room without ads, and we understand how ads can be annoying, so we made two plans specifically targeting private rooms gameplay. You can buy a one-time plan if you are looking to organize just one event, or use a subscription if you are going to organize games regularly in your classroom - all players playing in your rooms will have an ad-free experience.

Drawize Teams

If your classroom counts more than 12 members, you should consider Drawize Teams.

This is an option designed specifically with bigger groups in mind. Players are grouped into teams, and each team has an artist in each round. That way, all players will get their turn drawing sooner, and the whole game is more dynamic than classic Drawize when played in the big group.

Also, players in one team collect points together - allowing players to learn the importance of cooperation and teamwork.
