This product is designed to be used with Google Drive or Google Classroom. Perfect for 1:1 classrooms and going paperless! This assignment will teach your students the ins and outs of Google Slides and it is a great way to create a positive classroom community.
Students will first work in small groups, using the websites provided, to research one of the Famous Five. After organizing their research on the interactive Google Slides document, students will display their knowledge in a Google Slides presentation. Finally, each group will present to the class and the audience members will take notes on the provided digital organizer. In this manner, each student will learn about one member of the Famous Five in detail and will get an overview of the other four.
What is Included?
• PDF version of the presentation requirements
I like to print this and have my students keep it in their technology duotang for easy reference.
Alternatively, you could easily upload it to Google Drive or Google Classroom and share it with your students.
• Editable PowerPoint version of the presentation requirements (so that you can modify it for your students)
•Note: the requirements are also in the Google Slides presentation which is NOT editable. If you choose to change the requirements, simply delete this slide from the presentation before showing it to your students.
• Google Slides Presentation that walks students through the process of creating their own presentation. (I like to show this presentation on the SMART board and we walk through each step together. Then I share it with my students so that they can access it if they forget how to do something.
• Sample Google Slides Presentation (I have created this presentation about myself as a sample. Feel free to use mine or to create your own to show your students. This presentation is NOT editable as it is meant as a sample.)
