Winter Magnetic Poetry with Google Slides
The Winter Around the World Project is a globally collaborative project in which students share their winter stories, songs, poems, illustrations, and photographs. It is open to students of ALL ages around the world! The winter projects will all be gathered in this collaborative Google Slides presentation. This presentation will then be published as an eBook that will be shared around the globe! How cool is that? Work is due by December 1st.
Winter Magnetic Poetry
This is the third installment of magnetic poetry templates that I have shared. The first one was Collaborative Magnetic Poetry with Google Drawings. The second one was the Halloween version: Halloween Magnetic Poetry with Google Drawings. They were a lot of fun to create and I got a lot of great feedback on these.
I love Google Drawings and used it in the past templates to help teachers see the flexibility and creativity that this tool can offer. But to offer more variety, the winter version was created in Google Slides. I did this to offer some teachers some other options and to show you how the same idea that I created in Google Drawings can also be done in Slides if your prefer. Here are some of the options Google Slides will give you in this version:
- The Winter Around the World Project includes a collaborative Google Slide deck where students across the globe can share their projects. This new template will make that a simple copy and paste.
- Google Drawings is not currently compatible on mobile devices, but Google Slides is compatible. Be sure to download the Google Slides App for iOS or Android.
- One of the questions I have been asked about is locking the background in Google Drawings, so that students don’t accidentally move it. The background on this slide is locked, meaning the background image is set as the background on the slide. Note: The background can still be changed if you prefer, just right-click on the slide.
- I have also been asked if I could provide a word list. So I included additional slides with the word list for your and your students. This word list was a collaboration, generated by students from Lynn Kleinmeyer’s school in Iowa, words from the glossary in Winter: The Coldest Season of All, and some extra articles and nouns to bring it all together. There are over 100 words.
