Winter Magnetic Poetry with Google Slides
(*NOTE: This project was completed in 2015, but you can still grab the Magnetic Poetry template below.)
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 was gathered in this collaborative Google Slides presentation, then be published as an eBook that was shared around the globe!
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 created this version 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 you 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.
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 you 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.
