How Do I used Google Slides ™ Resources?

Have you downloaded a Google Classroom resource and you are not sure how to use it? Here is a step by step guide to help you. 


  • If you don't have a Google  account, you can sign up for free. 
  • If you have a school Google account, it would be advisable to download all your personal purchases to your own Google account. This is because many schools have security firewalls that only allow authorized users to access. You can then share your content with your school's Google Drive. 
  • Click on the link provided with the resource or access the resource through TPT. 
  • Next, you are going to be prompted to 'make a copy'. 
  • Go to your Google drive and if you double click on the new resource, you will find your resource ready to use. 
  • When you return to Google drive if you right click on the resource, you have the option to rename or move your resource within your drive. 



In order to share this resource with your students, you need to go to the store icon button on the right-hand side of your Google slide presentation. 

If you are already in your school drive, you can go ahead and add your class. If you are sharing the link, click on 'copy link' - copy this link onto an email and you will see this '/' at the very end and straight after the forward slash '/' you will see 'edit' and some coding. 

What you will need to do is delete all of the code after the / starting with 'edit' and replace with 'copy'.
