Google Slides Jokes Presentation Template

Do you need to add laughter to your class? Do you want students to enjoy creating presentations that interest them? This lesson will get your students laughing no matter what age they are. This activity requires students to locate jokes to put on a Google Slide template presentation. All the teacher has to do is share the template with students and they can be self-sufficient. They locate the jokes and set them up on 10 slides based on easy to follow video instruction. The videos touch base on design, since attractive presentations are important if we want to keep the attention of our audience. Once they set up the jokes, they can add large quality copyright friendly image to complement the jokes. There is video instruction on how to set up the slides with text, images, music and timings. Teachers can show the presentations to the class when they are completed. This is great fun for all in the classroom.

I provide students a lot of choice projects and they enjoy completing any unit I provide that includes finding jokes, quotes, memes, etc. that are interesting to them and then locate images to complement those words. Visual literacy, according to Visual Literacy Today, has provided a fabulous definition. “The basic definition of visual literacy is the ability to read, write and create visual images. It is a concept that relates to art and design but it also has much wider applications. Visual literacy is about language, communication and interaction. Visual media is a linguistic tool with which we communicate, exchange ideas and navigate our complex world.”

If your students enjoy this unit, you might be interested in the following projects:

If you follow me on TpT, you will see more projects like this. For instance, I had students make projects on anti-bullying, quotes on empathy, quotes on perseverance, etc.

Teachers might want to create a copy of the template and make their own example or just use my example so students understand what they will be creating.

After completing my lessons with your students, I would love your feedback on any of my units. Fill out the survey and I will randomly draw names for another free digital lesson at the end of each month. I encourage any educator who uses my resources to reach out to me if they have issues. I plan on dedicating my time to helping teachers to make their lives easier. I know how hard it is to be a teacher. We have so many hats to fill and teaching is only part of a teacher's job. I think back on my first years of teaching and am amazed how much technology has changed. I have spent a great deal of my free time to become more proficient with tech integration in the classroom. I have continued to modify my lessons to maximize the learning experience of my students. I find it challenging and very exciting. You can see student comments by visiting this link.
