How it works:
Instead of a paper task card, students set up a template on Google Slides then scoot from device to device responding to survey, short-answer and opinion questions about a topic with text, images, and/or movable digital pieces.

How to use this creation kit:

  • You pick ANY novel that all students have read or listened to. Works great following a read aloud or shared novel.
  • You write your own or tweak the provided questions.
  • You EDIT the templates RIGHT on Google Slides to fit your needs.
  • EVERYTHING on the template is editable: text boxes, backgrounds, shapes, etc.
  • You distribute your edited templates to students to play the game.

Since my products all utilize free web and app resources, there may be rare times that the technology does not work as planned, which may be out of my control. Please be sure to message me in the Q&A section so I can assist you before leaving feedback. I use all of the apps that I base my packets on frequently and will update products as the apps themselves update.
