What educators are saying

Great resource to introduce google classroom which is necessary for my kiddos in a COVID world. I had to modify it a little bit for third grade but it covered all the important info!
I used this with both my students and their parents to familiarize them to Google Classroom. It was invaluable the first 2 weeks of school.

Looking to start the school year with a strong foundation in Google Classroom skills? Want to make sure your students are prepared for distance learning? Plan to use Google Classroom in your in-person classroom? The Google Classroom Crash Course is designed to help you with any and all of these scenarios.

The crash course is a week long unit (designed to be 5 class periods). Days 1-4 are mini-lesson formatted lessons in which learning and exploring of Google Classroom is taking place. Day 5 is a final assessment, which students will apply the skills they have learned. If this format does not work for you, feel free to adjust the Crash Course to your classroom and students. You could simply use this resource as a reference material or individual guide for students / parents.

•A short assessment is also provided for each lesson, for a total of four mini-assessments

•A final assessment, a scavenger hunt, which combines the main skills from the four lessons
