Did you know that you can create amazing interactive lessons for students using G Suite tools like Google Slides and Google Drawings?

You know those really fun little magnets that challenge you to create a poem with just a small word bank? You can create a digital and interactive version of magnetic poetry for your classroom.

Based on some of the most popular blog posts on Shake Up Learning, Magnetic Poetry, I'm going to show you exactly how I created these fun and engaging interactive templates, share my favorite tips and tricks, as well as help you understand how YOU can create other types of interactive lessons with G Suite tools!

Summer Magnetic Poetry (FREE Template and Tutorial)

Using the Summer Magnetic Poetry Template as an example, I will show you exactly how I created it so you can create and revise these types of activities for your class.

Learn how to use Google Slides to create a creative background that is locked, so it doesn't move when students start adding words. AND learn how to create words that have the "look" of the magnets using Google Drawings.
