Requirements for Using a Google Drive Activity:
Both you and your students will need free Google accounts if you will assign this activity using Google Drive or Google Classroom. An internet connection is also required. While text can be added to this document and pieces can be moved around, the directions, questions, and slides/page designs are not editable. If using iPads, the free Google Slides app is required as students must work in “edit mode”, not “present mode”. Google Drive documents are often compatible with Microsoft OneDrive, so directions for assigning this activity to students using OneDrive are also included. In this case, only the teacher will need a free Google account to access the documents. An internet connection is still required for both teachers and students.
