Important Note: This is not an editable resource. The background of each slide cannot be changed. However, you can delete any of the movable images/words if you would like and use your own. Many slides have moveable pieces (mostly words). On slides where students need to type I did insert text boxes. You can delete them before sharing with students if you want to.

These slides are very similar to a few of the printables available in my Library Noprep Printables. I just adapted them to work on Google Slides.
