Students will design their own diaper cake for the New Year’s Baby RIGHT in Google Slides™ using just the copy, paste and even the fill tool. Students learn about the history of the New Year Baby and what it symbolizes. Then they will design their “cakes” by cutting and pasting the included images. Finally they will write about how their cake and the items they selected symbolize their hopes, dreams, goals, resolutions, etc. for the upcoming new year!

Plus, the entire slideshow is EDITABLE so you can customize the text and images to fit your students’ needs.
