30 interactive Google Slides activities for classroom excitement

1. Create a PDF ebook

PDF files are about as universal as it gets. You can open them on almost any Internet-ready device. They're read-only, so publishing a PDF is a good way to distribute information to be consumed by reading. Google Slides is a great, simple PDF ebook creation tool. Create a slide presentation, change it to the dimensions you prefer, add content and finalize by going to File > Download as ... > PDF Document.

I created a PDF ebook to help you create PDF ebooks. (I hope that's not as ridiculous as it looked as I typed it.) Click here to check out a post all about it. Or, take a look at the original Google Slides file where I created it. (Feel free to make a copy by going to File > Make a copy ... but please don't click "Share" and ask for edit access.)

ANOTHER FREE EBOOK -- I wrote an ebook called "101 Practical Ways to Ditch That Textbook" as a gift to my readers. I created it using Google Slides, just like the ebooks I describe above. "101 Practical Ways" is a huge compilation of tools and tips, backed up with screenshots, icons, links and more. Click here if you'd like to get it!

2. Create an interactive "slide deck book".

This idea is inspired by Matt Macfarlane, a middle school history teacher from California. In true "Ditch That Textbook" fashion, he has turned from traditional textbooks to creating his own. He finds engaging content on the web and collects it in his "slide deck books." His students access them online and can click links to get more information. He gives students an "anyone with link can view" link so they're read-only.

Some examples:

3. Play a "Jeopardy!" game.

Jeopardy on a PowerPoint presentation has been a staple in many classes. It's also possible to create via Google Slides. Eric Curts, a Google Certified Innovator, created this template that you can copy into your own Google Drive to customize with your own questions and answers. Keep track of the score on a whiteboard/chalkboard, on paper or through some other means.

(Note: When a question is answered, it doesn't disappear from the board. You might want to display the game on a whiteboard instead of a projector screen. When a question is selected, draw an X through it with a dry erase marker.)

4. Create another game-show-style review game.

Google Slides can be used to create lots of different games. I used Google Slides in this file to create a "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?" game. It was a simple one that can be played just by clicking through the slides. To create more complex games, you can create links to different slides in the presentation. (That's how the Jeopardy! game was created.)

5. Animate a concept.

Creating a stop-motion animation can be done relatively easily in Google Slides. This gives students the ability to animate and turn abstract ideas into tangible, engaging visuals. Create the first slide of the animation. Then make a duplicate of that slide. Make some small changes and then duplicate that most recent slide. Continue to make changes and duplicate until the animation is complete. Here is a link to a great stop motion science example (pictured below) showing how an electrical impulse in the body gets a muscle to contract, created by a student in Chris Baker’s science class.

6. Create an "online course".

In a traditional online course, students can jump from section to section at will and progress through the pages of that chapter. There may be assessments to take as well. You can create that same experience in Google Slides. Create a slide presentation with sections of slides for each module in the course. The first slide can have links to the different modules of the course. You can even create questions on the slides for self-assessment or a link to a Google Forms quiz for a more formal assessment. See an example of an "online course" template here. (Make sure you click the "present" button if you want to "take" the course.")

Self-grading quizzes give students immediate feedback. They also let students practice as much as they'd like without depending on the teacher. You can create self-paced assessments that provide answer feedback with Google Slides. For each standard four-question multiple-choice question, you'll need five slides:

• A question slide
• A feedback slide for answer A
• A feedback slide for answer B
• A feedback slide for answer C
• A feedback slide for answer D

On the question slide, for each possible answer, create a link to the feedback slide. Then, on each feedback slide, create a link to go on to the next question.

As a child, I loved these books, where your decisions affected the outcome for the character in the story. Google Slides lets you create similar experiences. They can be stories where the student can choose the path for the character. Students can create them, or teachers can create them for students. They can even be tied to any kind of class content. Tie the choices to answers for a question. (i.e. The character goes left if the student thinks the answer is 4.4 and goes right if the student thinks the answer is 7.2.)

I created a quick example of an impromptu, decide-on-a-whim vacation trip story where you decide for the main character. Click here to see that file (and feel free to make a copy and change the text for yourself!).

Here's another example, created by a student of Mandi Tolen's.Mandi's students tied storytelling to math problems using Google Forms. The same concept could easily be applied to a Google Slide presentation.

A few days ago I wrote a post about sending Google Forms to students for those of you who have wanted to give Google Form math activities a try. This post will cover sending Google Slides activities to students so that they each get their own copy.

With this method you do not need to be in Google Classroom or create individual flies for each student. Students will each get their own copy and not edit your original. And once you go through this method once, you'll be a Google Slides sending pro!

First, find a Google Slides activity you'd like to send. All of my digital math activities can be found here.

If you are covering slope, you can try this Slope 4 Ways Puzzle.

Or this movable parallel lines cut by a transversal poster.

How to send GOOGLE Slides through email

First I'll go over how to send a Google Slides math activity by email. (If you want the directions for sending Google Slides activities in Google Classroom, those directions are further down the post.)

Once you have a Google Slides activity in your Google drive that you would like to share, you'll want to right click on the file and choose share. This window will pop up:

Make sure the link is set on "can view". Then click "Copy link".

*The next step is the most important step that will ensure students get their own copies of the Google Slides activity.

Paste the link into a document of some sort. I pasted into Powerpoint but you can also use Word. Change the end of the URL from /edit?usp=sharing to /copy. It's this /copy URL that you will share with students.

Now when you email the URL to students it will force them to make their own copy when they click.

To check their work, just ask them to share their Slides activity back with you. So an email would look something like this:

Hi Students!

Please make a copy of this activity and share it back with me. My email is [email protected]

And that's it!

If you are in Google Classroom and want to share a Google Slides activity:

First, navigate to the Classwork Tab in Google Classroom and click "+ Create":

Next, name your assignment (required) and give it a description (optional). Then click "Add" and "Google Drive":

Now for the most important part: Choose "Make a copy for each student" before clicking "Assign".

And that's it!

If you have never sent a Google Slides activity to students, I hope you have found this post helpful! You can check out all of my digital math here:

How to send a GOOGLE Slides presentation

You might have GOOGLE Slides that you'd like students to view as a clickable presentation but not edit. A great way to do this is by changing the end of the URL to /present. By sending Slides in present mode, you can edit the Slides on your end and kids can see the edits on their end in almost real-time. This is a nice way to deliver the same information to all students, especially when the Slides are interactive.

This is the method I suggest for sending digital word walls. I put together a super short video on what present mode looks like from both the teacher's perspective and the student's perspective. It also goes over sharing digital word walls and adding text and images with hyperlinks:
