Lesson 5: Google Slides

In this lesson, we’re going to create one word per slide (two at the most!!!) Google Slide presentations.


Based on the MLA Essay that you wrote for homework as part of our last lesson, create a Google Slide Presentation that compliments it. Overall, your task is to teach us about your topic – whatever that topic may be.
You may only use one word per slide. So select images that will help you tell your story. The purpose of this activity is to help you become less reliant on your slides, and more reliant on yourself.


  • 5 slides only
  • File > Page Setup > 4:3
  • Use images as backgrounds – no pixelation
  • 1-2 words only per slide
