Spring Break Digital Report in Google Slides™ is a fun activity for students to complete when they return from Spring Break. It will also give YOU insight on what they did over the week. We all know how excited our students are to report back about their spring break and this digital writing activity
is the perfect way for them to reflect and report back to the class about their time away.
It would also be fun for students to complete the Google Slides™ presentation and present it to the class or small groups. This a great to do for 5 minute time fillers or brain breaks.
Easy enough for 1st-5th graders but middle schoolers would enjoy it too!
What is included?
