Spreadsheet Activities for all Subjects

I had the opportunity to present the following webinar recently:

Holy Sheets! Google Sheets Activities for all Subjects
Google Sheets is not just a tool for crunching numbers. It is a powerful tool for learning, inquiry, exploration, and inspiration in any subject area. In this session we take a look at several practical activities for a wide range of content areas including random writing prompts, flash cards, educational games, student-created learning databases, art and creativity, conditional formatting feedback for students, task lists, and of course analyzing data to draw conclusions and make predictions.

In the training I covered lots of creative ways that Google Sheets can be used for student activities including:

📊 Analyzing Data
💡 Learning Databases
🕹️ Educational Games and Activities
🎲 Random Generator Activities
🖼️ Art Activities
✔️ Tasks Checklists
💬 Conditional Formatting Feedback
💻 Activities from Google's Applied Digital Skills

  1. Thanks for all of the tools and ideas on how to use them. I am putting the Flippity add-on to use today in my Research Skills class for middle school students. We just reviewed Internet search strategies yesterday and today we will put them to use in a Jeopardy-style game format using Flippity. Thank you Eric!

    1. You are welcome! Glad you could use the ideas right away!

  2. Thank you for sharing these ideas with us Eric. I think students will really like using the sheets in all of the ways you've shared. I look forward to trying flippity.
