Drag & Drop with Google Slides & Draw

When we got our iPads, I wanted some interactive activities for my students.  Using Pages, I created my first drag & drop activity.  When we transitioned to Chrome, I also transitioned my platform.  I started using Google Draw.  I created one page proofs for students to practice with, taken from a paper activity I used year after year.

Once I figured out how to force a copy for slides (now Classroom does it for me!) I started making multiple practice pages with slides. Now I have a huge selection of activities that I use with all of my classes.  I’ve shared some below.

Geometry Proofs (see above)

Performance Event

Solving Equations

Protractor Practice

Writing Linear Equations

Students love using these activities, especially the Solving Equations & Writing Equations when they can work at their own pace.  I used both of these as remediation for standards students were stuck on.  It was a success!  I hope you find some inspiration with these and begin making some of your own.  Please share if you do!

Barbie Bungee

Our Unit 2 linear equations project was the famous Barbie Bungee from Illuminations.  We added a creation component, a poster created as a full color magazine advertisement, to the project so the students would have an end product.  Students love to make Barbie bungee, a lot of them also loved creating the poster.  There was some disconnect between the two and some of their products had to be corrected to reflect their learning. Overall, we had some great practice creating linear regression equations & interpreting slope and intercepts.
