Google Slides is not just for presentations anymore. It’s also a great tool for teachers, students, and anyone looking to get creative. Today, we will learn how to create a game using Google Slides. This is a fun and easy way to create interactive content, whether for education, work or just for fun.
Step 1: Open Google Slides
The first thing you’ll need to do is open Google Slides. If you have a Google account, you can access Google Slides for free by clicking on the “Google Apps” button (the grid of squares in the top right corner of the Google homepage) and selecting “Slides”.
Step 2: Create a New Presentation
Once you’re in Google Slides, click on the “+ New Presentation” button to start a new project. You can choose a template or start from scratch.
Step 3: Design Your Game
Now, it’s time to start designing your game. Most games in Google Slides are based around the idea of “clicking” on different elements to interact with them. For example, you might create a game where players click on different images to guess what they represent, or a trivia game where players click on multiple choice answers.
Remember, in Google Slides, you can add text, images, shapes, and lines to each slide by using the toolbar at the top. Feel free to get creative!
Step 4: Add Links
Once you have your slides designed, it’s time to make them interactive. You do this by adding links. To add a link, simply:
- Select the text or object you want to make clickable.
- Click on the link button in the toolbar (it looks like a chain link).
- Choose the slide you want the link to go to.
This will create a clickable link that takes players to a different slide when they click on the text or object. You can use this to create multiple choice questions, paths through a story, or any other interactive element you can think of.
Step 5: Test Your Game
Once you’ve added all your links, it’s time to test your game. Start from the first slide and play through the game, clicking on all the links to make sure they work as expected. If you find any problems, go back and edit the links as needed.
Remember, making a game is a process of experimentation and iteration. Don’t be afraid to make changes and try new things!
Google Slides makes it easy to create interactive games, quizzes, and other fun projects. With a little creativity and some basic knowledge of how links work, you can turn any presentation into an interactive game. So why not give it a try? Happy gaming!
