Are you tired of boring blank paper? Do your students dream of pages covered in over 400 dots? Well, let me introduce our sensational Square Dot Paper!

Draw 2D Shapes and 3D Objects

Students can also use this dot paper to create oblique drawings of 3D objects. (Make sure they use a ruler!)

Create Displays Using Graphs

Task students with displaying data using simple column graphs. They can use the dots to assist them with the creation of each axis and their chosen scale.
