Using Google Sheets to Create Vocabulary Activity

I developed an idea using spreadsheets in conjunction with the Flippity Flashcards mentioned in my prior post. Students will start the lesson by using the Flippity Flashcards to practice the vocabulary words. Afterwards students will have the opportunity to practice the vocabulary words using an interactive spreadsheet question & answer bank. When the answer is correct the thinking smiley face will change to a smiley face.
