Assigning Only One or a Few Slides in Google Slides

Digital Learning, Tech Tips

Written by: Angie Olson

If you have a long Google Slides presentation, you may not want to assign the whole thing to students. For example, if you use the monthly writing prompts from the Lucky Little Toolkit, there are prompts for the whole year. You may just want to choose one, a few for (choice), or one month’s worth of slides to assign to your students. Read on to find out how to assign only one or a few slides in Google Slides.

Assign One Slide from Google Slides

If you want your students to just focus on a particular writing prompt, for example, or complete a page of practice in a math lesson, you may want to assign just one slide to Google Classroom, Seesaw, or whatever learning platform you choose. To assign just one slide to your students follow these simple steps:

  • Find the page you want on the sidebar
  • Select File, Make a Copy
  • Choose “Selected Slides”
  • Name your file (it will save to your Google Drive
  • Assign the slide via Google Classroom by selecting the file within Classroom or sharing the link. You may also do this in Seesaw or another learning platform

Assign a Few Isolated Slides from Google Slides

Assigning multiple slides is also an option with Google Slides. You may choose this option for your students when you would like to give them a choice in writing prompts or assignments. Also, this is a good way to give additional opportunities for practicing the same or different concepts in a unit within one assignment. The slides can be in a different places in your presentation, but it’s simple to select and assign them with these steps:

  • Find the pages you want on the sidebar
  • Hold down Command and click on the slides you’d like to select multiple slides
  • Select File, Make a Copy
  • Choose “Selected Slides”
  • Name your file (it will save to your Google Drive)
  • Assign the slide via Google Classroom by selecting the file within Classroom or sharing the link. You may also do this in Seesaw or another learning platform.

Assign a Group of Slides from Google Slides

Many of your learners may work at their own pace. Assigning a group or longer unit of Google Slides is also great for review, differentiation, extension/independent learning, or just to allow your students to work on a week’s worth (or longer) of content on the same presentation. 

This is an excellent strategy if you want students to have access to materials and notes to review in the same presentation. Here’s how it works:

  • Find the page(s) you want on the sidebar
  • Hold down shift and click on the first slide you want to select
  • Continue to select the slides you want while keeping shift pressed. Click on the last slide you want to copy
  • Select File, Make a Copy
  • Choose “Selected Slides”
  • Name your file (it will save to your Google Drive)
  • Assign the slide via Google Classroom by selecting the file within Classroom or sharing the link. You may also do this in Seesaw or another learning platform.

The opportunities to assign one or multiple slides in Google Slides to your students are endless. These simple methods will have your students working on high quality assignments like those from the Lucky Little Toolkit in no time.

    Hello!
    First off, thank you for this post – it contains vital info I was looking for. And I am well versed in both Goole Apps (GoApp)and Google Classroom (GoCr) so it all made sense to me. I previously figured out the use of links in this process – so thank you for validating my conclusion. But I did not know how to assign single pages from a Presentation.
    Thankfully, in this post you answered the “How To’s” to assign certain slides and for them to save their work on Google Drive.

    In the process of creating said notebook, I have found that I am constantly asking myself questions like: how am I going to be able to…?
    ~ grade 170 kids work without having to go through each one Tab by Tab and page by page.
    My questions are… Does it save it to Google Drive in a single file or a folder? And, can they submit it, in GoCr, to the assignment as they do all other GoApp Assignments ?

    A bit of my professional history:
    Inspired by Distance Learning, the conventional 21-22 school year was my first fully digital one. My goal was not to Xerox one sheet of paper and amazingly, accomplished it!

    For the upcoming 22-23 school year. I am embarking on yet another challenging endeavor, journey, and goal of the Virtual Interactive Digital Notebook.

      Hello, Nicaela! Great questions! It will save to Google Drive in a single file, and it should be within the same folder that the original full presentation was in that you’re saving individual pages from. Students can submit it in Google Classroom. Best of luck with your virtual interactive notebook goal in 22-23!
