While these are definitely not as long-lasting as the plexi idea, I use ones
I made using some overhead transparency frames that were in my school's
supply room; I don't think anyone had a use for them, but I did! They're
made from poster-board weight white cardboard, they have about a 1.5" frame
all around, with rounded corners and an opening big enough to tape an
overhead transparency into. I just printed out a sheet with the "quadrants"
on it, then photocopied it onto transparency sheets, then taped them into
the frames. So far, I've used my original set of them with 5 classes, and
they're holding up ok.

I use Plexiglas, 8 x 10, divided into quadrants with Sharpie. Lasts
forever; relatively cheap, much more stable to make those vis-a-vis marks

I am working on making lessons from the "Drawing on the Right Side of the
Brain" book, and have gotten to the Plastic Picture Plane part.
What do you all do about that? Do you make them from scratch? I know I
made some a few years ago at my previous school, but I don't hardly have
that kind of time anymore to make enough for 32 students. Before I made
cardboard frames and taped in overhead projector sheets?
