Google Slides is useful for more than presentations. Slides include a variety of options that are useful for creating interactive slides. Shapes like rounded rectangles are used for navigation buttons. Speech bubbles in the shapes palette are used for conversations between characters. Search the Internet within Slides to find appropriate characters for stories. All image searches return images in the creative commons or in the public domain. Add backgrounds on slides to enhance the story with more visual interest. Use Google Drawings to create custom backgrounds. Include voice-over narration with embedded video. Use slide animations and transitions to enhance the story. Create your own animated Gifs with free Chrome browser applications.
