A few days ago I wrote a post about sending Google Forms to students for those of you who have wanted to give Google Form math activities a try. This post will cover sending Google Slides activities to students so that they each get their own copy.

With this method you do not need to be in Google Classroom or create individual flies for each student. Students will each get their own copy and not edit your original. And once you go through this method once, you'll be a Google Slides sending pro!

First, find a Google Slides activity you'd like to send. All of my Google Slides math activities can be found here.

If you are covering slope, you can try this Slope 4 Ways Puzzle.

Or this movable parallel lines cut by a transversal poster.

First I'll go over how to send a Google Slides math activity by email. If you want the directions for sending Google Slides activities in Google Classroom, those directions are further down the post.

Once you have a Google Slides activity in your Google drive that you would like to share, you'll want to

__right click on the file and choose share__. This window will pop up:

Click "Get shareable link".

Make sure the link is set on "can view". Then click "Copy link".

*The next step is the most important step that will ensure students get their own copies of the Google Slides activity.

Paste the link into a document of some sort. I pasted into Powerpoint but you can also use Word. Change the end of the URL from /edit?usp=sharing to /copy. It's this /copy URL that you will share with students.

Now when you email the URL to students it will force them to make their own copy when they click.

To check their work, just ask them to share their Slides activity back with you. So an email would look something like this:

*Hi Students!*

*Please make a copy of this activity and share it back with me. My email is teacher@gteacher.com*

*Activity: https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1YrlOlICBFhoMNhB_ullXPR0obFzl86JFbikSyPgDyUo/copy*

*And that's it!*

**If you are in**

__Google Classroom__and want to share a Google Slides activity:First, navigate to the Classwork Tab in Google Classroom and click "+ Create":

Next, name your assignment (required) and give it a description (optional). Then click "Add" and "Google Drive":

Now for the most important part: Choose "Make a copy for each student" before clicking "Assign".

And that's it!

If you have never sent a Google Slides activity to students, I hope you have found this post helpful! You can check out all of my GOOGLE math activities here:

I see this is about emailing the students, if I want to share in google classroom, I just add an assignment - which would then be a google doc with the version of the slides link with the /copy at the end.?

ReplyDeleteThank you for asking this. I just updated the post with directions for assigning a Google Slides activity to students through Google Classroom.

DeleteHi,

ReplyDeleteThank you for this detailed info. If I am using /copy and students share it back with me, is there any way that all shared slides can be accumulated at one place? I have 28 students in class so wondering if I get sharable link from them all, is there a better way to collate that info?

I don't think that there is, at least not that I know of with Slides. I think this is one of the benefits of Google Forms because all answers end up in one place.
