I love Google Slides because you can use it as a whiteboard and the whole class can participate. (Read: never again spend hours copying, cutting and sorting only to have someone lose one card and not be able to fully participate. Oh wait, students can’t lose these because they’ll be saved in the Google!)
I use this Slide deck to practice prepositions. If I’d had time, I would have had students write about their rooms and their partner’s room. They can write directly in their Slide decks.
Click on the link and the slide deck will force you to make a copy. Share in Google Classroom as “make a copy for each student.” And talk, read and write.

With the new changes in Google Forms, making quizzes is now even easier. I’ve been using Google Forms exclusively for quizzes in my paperless classroom. Here are some tips for making your Google Forms into Awesome Quizzes. For more tips, watch my workflows on setting up a quiz from Google Forms.
My favorite feature of Google Slides is that you can use them for everything else besides delivering content. I’ve made a Google Slide deck for Bingo. Share it with students as “make a copy for each student” in Google Classroom and play away. Directions are on the first slide. Click on the link and it will prompt you to make a copy.
