Seven Great Google Slides Templates for Creativity and Critical Thinking

Seven Great Google Slides Templates for Creativity and Critical Thinking

Great Google Slides Templates

Google Slides is too powerful to limit its use to boring presentations. Create engaging learning experiences while promoting critical thinking and creativity with these seven Google Slides templates you can use in virtually any classroom. The sharing settings for all of these templates are set up so that users can create an editable copy by clicking “Make a Copy,” or “Use Template.”

Facebook Page

Although Facebook continues to decline in popularity among students, they still love creating fake Facebook pages for historical figures, book characters, plants, animals, etc. My favorite face Facebook page generator is a simple Google Slides template. Students just replace the images and text for their assigned entity.

Twitter Template

I found this great template from Jim Covais, Covais Tech. A simple, single page template with placeholders for header and profile images. Students can add a bio and are provided with space for three tweets.

Time Magazine Template

Time Magazine - Google Slides Template

I first thought this template was just for the magazine cover, but it’s much more than that. It includes eight more pages with placeholders for a variety of images. It also takes advantage of the Google Slides ability to embed video.

National Geographic Template

This template is set up perfectly for four short articles. Similar to the Time Magazine Template, this template includes image and video placeholders.

Bonus Template: Brainstorming / Graphic Organizers

It might not fit in with the theme of the other templates in this post, but it would be remiss of me to leave out O’Donnell’s awesome Google Slides template for brainstorming / graphic organizers. Students can collaborate in real-time to create Venn diagrams, KWL charts, and more.
