I feel like we spend so much time learning the “how to” with Google Docs that we never get to focus on the “what.” Today I am going to list 5 ideas that you can use Google Docs with your students. Either for a project or with the entire class. I have links to examples. If you want to use the examples, click the link and “make a copy” to get your own template.
Have students show what they have learned in a poster! You can make them a template and push out a copy to every student with Google Classroom or you can have each start with a blank slate.
Here is an example of a poster about Thomas Jefferson’s Political Career:
Here is a Science Poster Presentation. Students could add links to pictures and videos:
Fill In Graphic Organizer
Have students fill in a graphic organizer for an activity
Have students take pictures and using “drawing tool” inside of the doc, make speech bubbles.
Not only can students use the template to make a newspaper, but since it is a shared document, groups can type into one document and proof read each other’s work.
While teaching students fractions, have them take a recipe and cut it in half. Next, put the new recipe in on the recipe card.
These are just a few suggestions of ways to use Docs for something other than writing papers! If you are doing something new and creative, let us know is the comment section!
