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

There are a few options for instructions:
1) Online instructions - Rich, interactive instructions which include a linked Table of Contents available from every page, access to some video instruction, detailed screenshots, and excellent document navigation options. There is also some limited animation of titles to increase student interest in the instructions. These instructions are available from any device that connects to the internet and will work in any browser, so they would be accessible from home for the students. The link to the online instructions is included in the Teacher's Manual.
2) Interactive PDF instructions - Includes all the bells and whistles of the online instructions except for the limited animation and availability.
3) Paper instructions - The Interactive PDF instructions can be printed.

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
