These virtual classroom backgrounds for Zoom, Google Meet, and other platforms with a 16:9 aspect ratio are a great way to keep your students interested when you’re teaching a Prehistory unit. A total of 45 Zoom backgrounds were created from 10 images. Some of the backgrounds were created from clipart images, some from photographs, and some from paintings. Each image has 3-6 versions; the difference is in the titles and subtitles used and location of the text on the backgrounds.

✓ Please note:

* This resource is a zip file that includes a) a PDF document with information about using these backgrounds and the jpeg images, and b) a folder with the backgrounds as individual jpegs. The backgrounds are provided both ways for your convenience.

More Info:

You can see all the backgrounds for Zoom and Google Meet in the Preview.

Different versions of the backgrounds were created to give you flexibility when using them: You can display 1 of the backgrounds and all its versions over several days; you can display a different background over the course of an entire unit of 10 days; or you can use different versions of each background if your unit is longer than 2 weeks. For example:

* Display the seaside backgrounds when asking students “What is prehistory?” at the beginning of the unit.

* Display the Early Hominids backgrounds when teaching about the Paleolithic Age.

* Display the Neanderthals and Cro Magnon backgrounds when teaching about the Neolithic Age.

The resource includes some suggested questions about the images on the backgrounds that you can ask your students to help activate their learning.

Using these virtual backgrounds will spark your students’ interest in Prehistory and provide some virtual decor when you are teaching remotely!
