Students Create Animated Vocabulary Cards with Google Slides

Okay I admit to being a wee bit “Over the Hill” and growing up using those boring rote memorization flash cards. These days there are so many other avenues one can take to support the learning of vocabulary. I like having fun and know the kids do too! Google Slides presents an opportunity for the students to play and be creative while making a vocabulary study tool. Here is a simple animation idea which supports both the students critical thinking skills along with having “Good Old Fashion Fun Creating!”
