    Since this our first year having formal technology classes, my students have never given any actual instruction for presentation software. This was an excellent way to introduce all my students to Google Slides. My younger students struggled a little bit, but that was expected. My older students were able to follow the videos and instructions easily.

  2. Malinda G. (verified owner)

    This is a great activity to get kids familiar with google slides. I love how easy it is and the kids are able to apply their knowledge to other slide projects.

    This resource was completely necessary this past year during virtual learning. It was a great way to teach students the basic skills they would need in order to complete all of our virtual lessons for the remainder of the year. A bit tricky at first, but my 2nd graders got the hang of it eventually.

  4. Buyer (verified owner)

    What can I say but another great resource! No prep just load into LMS and go. My students learned a lot and found this interesting and engaging.

  5. Rosa L. (verified owner)

    My students in person AND online have enjoyed these lessons! The best part for me is there is NO prep involved. Just upload the file to your LMS!
