Google Templates and More

Teachers do not have tons of time to create templates for student use. Between recess duty, parent meetings and the surprise fire drill, finding time to create anything can be difficult. Fortunately, we can collaborate to build a collection of resources that can engage students and save time.

In this particular post, you will find resources curated and created by educators. These resources are accessible because teachers shared what they were using in their classrooms. In order to utilize each of these templates, you will need to make a copy for your own use. To do this click on “File” and choose the “Make Copy” option in your Google account.

Elementary Templates-Use these templates to engage students and work with primary students. Thanks Laura Wilson for curating these great resources.

Google Templates from TCEA-Loads of templates sorted by subject and topic.

Alice Keeler Templates-This teacher is amazing and has created tons of templates you can use with your own students. There is even a tutorial on how you can create your own templates using Google Drawings.

Also, consider submitting your own creations for others to share!  To submit templates others can utilize, simply put a link to your template (view only mode) in the comments below. Once we have a number of templates, I will create a spreadsheet and share them with all of you. The more we can work together, the more we can accomplish.


One of the questions that was asked is how you might assign work to individuals in a classroom document. I have created a quick tutorial on how you might use Google Slides to create a collaborative activity or assign students their own pages in a collaborative Google Doc.
