Graphic Design is a critical skill for students of this generation to learn, and what better way than to integrate it into an activity that is "ALL ABOUT THEM"
This is a great back to school activity that allows the teacher to learn more about the students, as well as introduce Google Slides. This is the very first activity that I use at the beginning of each semester to introduce how you can use Google Slides (or MS PPT) as a method of creating flyers/posters.
I have another All About Me Project, but it focuses on creating a presentation; this intro activity is for printing out one 8.5 x 11 from a Google Slide, and hanging the posters in the hallway.
I have found that the kids are much more open to learning about the presentation software when they see just how many different things they can use the software for.
