A while back I learned about Slides Carnival as a resources for some great presentation templates to dress up Google Slides. I used many of them and was pleased with how easy they were to copy and use. Slides Carnival not only provides you with great templates but each template has some awesome presentation tips and guidelines for creating better presentations. The second slide of the presentation generally give instructions for use as well as the attribution requirements for the graphics within the slide making it easy, clear and fun to build off of some great ideas.
This week I revisited Slides Carnival to see if there were new templates I might use and was pleasantly surprised to find that they have added several new ones. And they are FREE! Specifically the Halloween 2015 Slide Carnival Template Deck would make for a fun Halloween themed lesson full of pumpkins, cats, spooky font and more. Check it out by clicking here.
From the last time I visited, only a few months back, there are 8-10 new templates for various topic and styled presentation. They are so useful for their flowcharts, graphics and backgrounds. Most of them include tables and maps but they all have a series of icons and clearly support a one color presentation styled focus.
Give Slides Carnival a peek to add some variety to your classroom lesson slides. Communicate creatively!
