Taking Google Slides to the Next Level
Change the Slides Master
One quick change that can be made is to change the Slides Master within a Google Slides presentation. If you've ever found yourself continually changing the fonts of a Slides presentation, or even the colors of the design, you're working too hard. If you go to View > Master, you're able to edit all of your text, background colors, and other elements of the Slides Theme in one location. Additionally, in that window, you can add images that will be applied to each slide, so if you have a logo to apply, that can easily be done here. Finally, once that window is closed, your new selections will be applied to all of the Slides in your presentation!
Another great site for Slides templates is SlidesMania. This site is quite similar to Slides Carnival, except there seems to be a few more templates. In addition to similar categories, this site has a category for Education. Within it are templates for meeting the teacher, classroom rewards systems, and a classroom scrapbook.
Google Template Gallery
In addition to these websites, and the Slides Master, Google also has templates built-in that are not the usual themes that appear in the beginning of the design. If you go to slides.google.com, the top banner is where you can select templates from the Template Gallery. From book reports to flash cards, to science projects, the templates are available. Then, once selected, you can edit the Slides Master to customize them as your own template.
