Students will LOVE these digital activities all about unicorns! This resource for Google Drive™ contains 13 different digital unicorn themed activities in Google Slides™ that are fun and paperless while remaining academic. Reading, writing, making words and other skills are targeted.
Slide 1: Title page
Slide 2: Directions for Chromebook/computer users and iPad users
Slide 3: Building Vocabulary Knowledge: Students can use a paper dictionary, the built in Google dictionary or the two online dictionaries that are linked into the speaker notes of this slide to define the words: mythical, spiral, deem, narwhal, and tusk.
Slide 4: Highlight It: Students highlight the important information using the highlighter tool. This paragraph is about where these mythical creatures originated and even teaches about the prefix, -uni, meaning one.
Slide 5: Embedded YouTube video about Unicorns of the Sea: Narwhals: After viewing the video, students type their answers in the right hand side of the table. After answers have been added the the table, students will use the magic reveal magnifying glass to uncover the correct answers that are hidden in the answer key that appears to the right of the slide.
Slide 6: Summarize It! Students will summarize something they learned from Slides 3-5 (or you could choose to give them a passage/book to read and then summarize on this slide)
Slide 7: If I were a unicorn: Students will take a selfie and crop to shape (directions are linked into the speaker notes) to place as the head under the unicorn horn. They will then type a paragraph about what life would be like if they were a unicorn.

Slide 13: Patterns: Students will use the unicorn themed emojis to create two different naming patterns. (Ex. ABBCABBC, ABCABC, ABCDABCD)
