How to Use:
In this activity we are using Google Slides (or PowerPoint) like a digital interactive notebook. This means that the file needs to be in “edit” mode the entire time in order for the pieces to be movable. Show students how to drag and drop the pieces. If a student accidentally resizes or deletes the clip art, show them where the undo button is.
