For my educator friends who have access to Google Slides, but do not have access to PowerPoint, this post is for you.  Since Google Slides does not have the animation that makes the Splats become transparent, the Splat! reveal does not work in Slides.  Now – with these materials – it will.  I’ve rewritten the first 20 Splat! lessons and the first 20 Fraction Splat! lessons with a different method so they will now include the reveal when using Google Slides.

The content of the lessons is the same as the original lessons.

Visit these links to see the original videos about how to use the Splat! and the Fraction Splat! slides.

Quick Note:  The file sharing power of Google Drive is impressive and highly useful.  However, for the purposes of sharing these resources, I need to use a method that I can personally maintain, update and support – and I’ve learned that the best way to provide resources from my blog is through the download links and the sign-up forms.

I hope you enjoy these Splats! formatted to work in Google Slides!

Splat Through 10
How many dots are under the Splat?

Splat Through 20
How many dots are under the Splat?

Multiple Splats
Note:  Splats that are the same color must cover the same number.

Instant Multiple Splat
Note:  An additional feature of this level is the opportunity to ask, “What could the total be?”

Fraction Splat!

Note:  These lessons use a single splat along with a mixture of unit fractions and whole numbers.  In Level 11, you control the Splat!

Instant Fraction Splat!

Note:  These lessons use a single Splat! which appears at the same moment as the whole numbers and fractions.  Each question instantly presents missing information.

Multiple Splats! with Fractions

Note:  These lessons include multiple Splats! and you control the timing of the Splats!  The entire screen can be seen, the total can be determined, and then Splat!  Remember:  Each Splat! that is the same color must be covering the same number.

Multiple Instant Splats! with Fractions

Note:  These lessons use multiple Splats! which appear at the same moment as the whole numbers and fractions.  Each question instantly presents missing information.  Remember:  Each Splat! that is the same color must be covering the same number.

I’m excited to use this with my children! Is the explanatory video for Splats available elsewhere (I didn’t find it on YouTube)? The format does not seem to be working on this site.

2. Steve,
You pursuit of experiences and your sharing of your gifts are a precious commodity that I am honored to know and be able to share. Thanks for your continued work and sacrifice in making fantastic resources, the conversion to G-Slides is great, and I’m very impressed. Always top notch work my friend, well done. Also, I hope you are well and I hope to hear from you soon.

I love the idea of using splat with google slides for my kindergartners. I need a bit of tech support. I downloaded the slides but don’t know how to include them in my math slide presentations. Usually I can import slides, but first they need to be in my google account.

1. Hi Cheryl,

I think if you save them in your google drive you’ll be able to open them from there and then make the changes that you want. In this case you may want to open both of the slide shows you are working with so that you can move slides back and forth (or copy and paste the slides from one slide show to the other.

Thank you! I am so excited to use Splat! with my class this year. We have Chromebooks, so the new format is perfect!!

Thank you so much. I have loved your work, but the format wasn’t practical for me to use with my class. This is just what I was hoping for. Can’t wait to hear the student talk generated.

1. Hi Wendy,
I’m so happy this will work better for you. I’d love to hear how it goes!
