Product Description
In this cross-curricular research activity, students create and format a table containing facts about significant African American trailblazers in the world of sports. This would be an excellent complement to any Black History month related unit. It is also a fantastic resource for anyone looking to teach how to use Google Docs. Students are exposed to many valuable and useful formatting skills including:
• how to create a table
• using the "table formatting" Google Docs Add-On to quickly format a table
• changing font style, face, size and color
• underlining text
• adding page numbers and footers

The instructions come in the form of an interactive .pdf complete with a clickable navigation system and table of contents. This makes it easy for students to quickly get around the document and backtrack efficiently if they need to review anything. The beauty of Google Drive apps like Docs is they allow students to access their work anywhere they have an internet connection. Additionally, it offers students the ability to collaborate on work. Multiple students can work on the same document!

This lesson is ideal for the 1:1 classroom environment, but works in other settings as well.

This is an excellent follow up to Google Docs - Intro to Formatting Activity. and Google Docs - Creating tables intro activity
