Use Collaborative Google Slides to Create Historical Tweets

I love to share a good idea! Ashley Fort shared how she has students use a Google Slides deck to create a fake Twitter profile of famous people they have researched. The students then tweet as the famous person within the Google Slides. This is a 21st-century lesson that involves creativity, critical thinking, collaboration, and research.

Twitter Spreadsheet

Students would not tweet for real on Twitter. However, if you have a class Twitter account you could have the students tweet the tweets from the class account. I have created a spreadsheet that allows the students to enter their tweet and the historical figure’s fake twitter handle.

Collaborative spreadsheet to tweet historical tweets

Share the spreadsheet with students so they can type their own tweets into column A. Designate a student to approve and tweet from the class Twitter account if possible. A blue link in column E launches a tweet for Twitter that is comprised of the historical tweet, the fake account handle, and the hashtag you’re using for this activity.
