Borders to use in your Powerpoint Resources Free

Borders to use in your Powerpoint Resources Free

This resource contains 20 plus borders that you can use for free in your Powerpoint resources. They are meant for older children, and adults. This is my first attempt at creating borders. I couldn't find what I was looking for to meet my needs on this site. Most borders on here are great, but too childish for my audience. This is why I have created a free product to see what you think. I would really appreciate your feedback on these. I have also included instructions on how to use these borders with Powerpoint. They are PNG files that need to be inserted and then possibly minor adjustments to sizing depending on your computer setup. I hope you enjoy using them. Please let me know what you think by emailing compcoachab@gmail.com.

Backboard Icebreaker Communication Game - Small or Large Groups

Backboard Icebreaker Communication Game - Small or Large Groups

Parents, Teachers, Educators... you have located a team game that has engaged everyone who has played it so far. Backboard is more than just a game. It is an opportunity to work together as a team and enhance communication, motor skills, and social pragmatics with your students either as an ice breaker activity in school or family board game at home. The goal of the game is to move your pieces along the journey of the game board and reach the end. While in transient, you will encounter 4 different types of drawing cards. Each type represents a level of increasing difficulty. For each card, there will be a translator [player who describes the card to the drawer] and a transcriber [player who draws the shape]. Each card has a specially engineered shape that the transcriber will have to describe to the drawer. The Drawer will have a specific amount of time to draw that shape. After time expires, the transcriber will match that shape to the translator’s master card. If the shapes match, points will be earned and they will advance.
