Y’all know I love choice boards (aka learning menus), and especially Tic-Tac-Toe boards! As more and more teachers are relying on the flexibility of choice boards during remote learning, I thought I’d create a template that would give teachers a bit more space to explain the tic-tac-toe choices. So today, I’m giving you the FREE Interactive Tic-Tac-Toe Choice Board for Google Slides!
Choice boards a great way to give students ownership of their learning and differentiate; AND they are great for giving students flexibility during home learning.
The Tic-Tac-Toe is great for a lot of reasons, but I struggle, like many other teachers, to fit everything I want in the little square of the tic-tac-toe choice board.
What’s great about Google Slides, which I often refer to as the Swiss Army Knife of G Suite, is the ability to add a link to another slide (internal linking). Learn more about this feature in 25 Things You Didn’t Know Google Slides Could Do!
So we can create additional slides that are linked to each “square” and contain more specific instructions, which is especially needed during this time of home learning.

The FREE Interactive Tic-Tac-Toe Choice Board for Google Slides template is embedded below so you can take a gander.
I used the same lesson design that I have shared in my book, in the Teacher’s Guide to Digital Choice Boards, and in Interactive Choice Boards with G Suite, where I shared a similar template for Google Docs.
This template is blank so you can customize for your students, and fill it with fun and flexible activities!

On the second slide, you will find the Teacher’s Guide to help you customize this template for your students.

- If the directions are lengthy or you need to include other information like a rubric that won’t fit in the square, use the directions slide to add additional info for your students. It’s already linked for you!
- Remember, you can assign this in Google Classroom so that students can view the file if you don’t want students to be able to edit this file. If you want students to add links, a reflection, or other information, choose to “make a copy” for each student.
