Geometric Eggs in Google Drive™ is a digital spring time activity that can be adapted for a variety of topics and grade levels.
Students will design an Easter (or you can just call it a "spring") egg in Google Drawing™ either individually or in pairs. Geometric eggs could include geometry topics such as:
★lines of symmetry
★Angles (obtuse, acute, right)
Check out the preview to see some examples!
If you don't teach geometry then you could always adapt this project and have students decorate eggs with:
★ vocabulary words
★ parts of speech
★ objects that retell a story
★ objects that explain history
★ YOU name it ;)
They will save their egg as a png image and add it to an assigned slide in a collaborative
Google Slides™ presentation. On this slide students will type a description of their egg (ex. how many lines of symmetry are shown, names of shapes, etc.) and add arrows that point to the different terms displayed. They will then animate the arrows and their text to appear on a click. This will turn the presentation into an interactive practice for the entire class and anyone you wish to share it with!
For instance, if the presentation was about lines of symmetry...1. Slide appears with egg and students have to count how many lines of symmetry it contains 2.(click) Arrow appears (click) arrow appears 3. (click) Sentence with answer appears.
The presentation comes with 3 choices of title slides (just delete the ones you don't want):
★EGG-cited about Symmetry
★Editable slide with an egg border
★Editable slide-add text to the middle and have students insert and resize their eggs all around the text
: You can always skip the Google Drawing™ step and have your students design an egg right within Google Slides™. However, I always like for students to design on their own (or in small groups) before jumping on a big collaborative presentation since there is a lot of clicking involved in the egg creation Also, saving the image as a png in Google Drawing is best for adding the eggs to title page choice #3.
What is included?
★ Directions in Google Slides:
Step-by-step directions are included! A YouTube video tutorial I created is embedded into one of the slides to go along with the directions. The video demonstrates how to use some of the tools in Google Drawing to decorate the egg. Launch this on your board to walk through together as a class OR distribute to your students for them to follow independently.
★ Egg Template in Google Drawing:
Give each student their own copy of this template. If you want students to work in pairs, give each pair their own copy! After designing their egg, students will save it as a png file before importing to the collaborative Google Slides presentation.
★ Egg Collaborative Presentation in Google Slides:
Share the link to the collaborative presentation. Students will add their egg to an assigned slide and add a description. Directions also appear at the bottom of these slides.
30 student slides are in this presentation but you can add or delete as many as you wish! Remember, you also have the choice between three different title slides. I have included an example of a completed slide that you can show your students before beginning this digital project. Delete this once you have shown the class.
★ Editable Grading Rubric in Google Slides:
A 25 point grading rubric is included. Just add your grading criteria to the 5 text boxes and print! Slide is already set to print on 8.5x11 paper.
★ Embedding Directions:
A slide appears at the end of the directions presentation that tells you how you can embed the final presentation to your class blog/website.
★ Egg Project Links in Google Slides:
All of the links to the items mentioned above come in one Google Slides™ presentation. This download will contain a PDF with a link that will prompt you to make a copy of this presentation slide. Rename the file to whatever you would like. It will be sent directly to your Drive! All of the other links will work with same way. Disperse to your students via Google Classroom™, Google Drive™ Shared folder, your Learning Platform, etc..
