There are several games you can play to help you with your learning, including the newly added Quizlet Live! which allows for individual or group competition. Search for you topic or even by your textbook title to find sets already made you and your students may use.
Curriculum Pathways focuses on curriculum that is difficult to explain to students. They provide online curriculum resources that may be easily sorted according to discipline, grade level, or standards for free to grades K-12. They feature over 1700 resources, including many inter-actives and primary sources. Be sure to take a look at the SAS Writing Reviser. It is a Google Doc add-on.
Are you new to Google Classroom? Google has put together a wonderful training site with short videos on all the different pieces of Google Classroom. There are handy guides you can print if you want.
Where would you like to take your students this year? Google Expeditions will expand your choices. You may check this spreadsheet to find available trips. You don't have to have a virtual reality viewer to use them, but if you are a teacher in Shelby County the kit will be coming to your school.
