Are you looking for some activities to give your students to introduce them to Google Docs? This 4 lesson bundle provides plenty of variety and interesting, immersive activities for your students. It is priced to save you over 33% off buying each of the products individually. I have been giving these assignments to beginners of Google Docs and they have worked extremely well. Each lesson comes with detailed step by step instructions with plenty of screenshots.

The instructions come in the form of an interactive .pdf files, which allow students to navigate throughout the documents by clicking buttons, click on linked Table of Contents, and toggle between full screen mode and normal viewing mode. Students enjoy this measure of control over how they get around the instructions, and they are quickly and easily able to backtrack and review information using the Table of Contents.

Please feel free to contact me with questions or comments regarding this bundle! I hope that you find it useful and I look forward to hearing from you.

Included in this package:
Google Docs - Intro to Formatting Activity
This is an excellent introduction to formatting in Google Docs for beginners/newbies! Students learn the essentials of formatting titles, body text, and images. They format text size and alignment. They also learn how to create and edit bulleted lists. This activity is intended as a springboard into Google Docs, with more activities to follow. It is a great lesson to introduce the Google tools to students.

Google Docs - Creating tables intro activity
In this beginner-friendly activity, students create a table for a fitness workout schedule. Tables are an excellent way to organize and present data in a visually compelling manner. Students are exposed to many valuable and useful formatting skills including:
• how to create a table
• inserting rows
• inserting columns
• merging cells
• aligning information center and right
• changing the color of text
• underlining text
• changing the color of rows and columns

Google Docs - Black Sports Pioneers Research Activity
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 formatter" Google Docs Add-On to quickly format a table
• changing font style, face, size and color

Google Docs - Creating a clickable, dynamic calendar
Students work in Google Docs to create an interactive, linked calendar containing images to suit each month. I find the students really enjoy the fact that they are creating hyperlinks to make their calendars real live documents that they can quickly and efficiently navigate. They also enjoy stylizing the calendars to suit their own tastes.

Creating links is a snap so beginners of Google Docs can definitely thrive in this activity. I have attempted to make the instructions as detailed and explicit as possible so that newbies can follow along.

- Take the time to do these exercises yourself prior to presenting to the students so you are familiar with the steps.
- I find it helpful to demo a finished answer, and then click on another tab that contains a partially completed copy of the finished answer. I then show students how to complete new or challenging skills.
