What educators are saying

This was an excellent resource for an animal research project! I was able to edit the template slides to customize this resource for my student needs.

How to make the presentation exactly how you want it:

  1. Open the Google Slides presentation and decide which slides you want your students to complete for their animal writing project. (Or, give them the freedom to choose.) Simply delete the rest.
  2. There are multiple versions of the same slide (noted below) such as Habitats and Babies, so you can decide if you want your students (or specific students) to create a list or type in paragraph form.
  3. You can change any of the headings to match your preference (ex. Change Babies to Life Cycle)
  4. You can type in any special writing lingo you use or directions that you want your students to remember (ex. what they should include in their introduction) in the given text boxes.
  5. When you love it, send the presentation to your students to complete through Google Classroom or send them the Google Slides link.

  • What do you want to know?

Can I edit this activity?

Yes! I created this activity so you have maximum freedom to customize the slides exactly how you want them.

  • All of the text is 100% editable. Just click and type!
  • The formatting is 100% editable (Except for 3 slides due to image copyright)
  • You can easily change the headings on the slides. If you'd rather it say Life Cycle than Babies, click and change it!
  • Students can easily change the size and orientation of the image boxes depending on the images they find.
  • You can delete or duplicate any slide in the presentation.
  • I purposely did not lock down the elements on the slides so students have the freedom to make the presentation their own.

Who is this activity good for?

It's great for students and teachers who are just starting to use Google Slides and also those already Google Slides savvy. Share this activity through Google Classroom or simply share the link.

Student directions are listed next to the slides to help students:
