How to Make New Google Sites Unit Plans

New Google Sites unit plans organize everything in a logical manner. When you create a curricular website, resources immediately become polished and professional. Additionally, you can link relevant videos, articles, and even blog posts.

As an example, let’s take a look at an upper elementary fables unit, which was built using New Sites.

Lesson Plans

The lesson plans appear on the first page. In order to navigate the plans better, words link to needed student pages.

Linking to Printable and Paperless Worksheets

The next page houses a set of ten fables with comprehension questions. Instead of just listing the activity and linking it, I decided to insert photos of the activity. That way, teachers can see what’s offered at a glance.

In order to address digital learning, teachers may choose a printable PDF or paperless Google Slides. To accomplish this, I stored the files in my Google Drive, adjusted the permissions, and linked the URL to the words below the images.

Linking to eBooks

To further limit copying, I linked an eBook to the reading activities page. Below that, covers for individual reading activities link to their respective web pages.

More Linking

Each activity page also links to printable and paperless options. Additionally, I reminded myself (and other teachers) to show a video. The words simply link to a page entitled “Related Links” on this site.

Adding images and labeling only take a few minutes. However, they save valuable teaching time in subsequent years. For example, on the page with fables plays, I displayed the first page of each fable. Then I told how many pages and how many characters in each. Teachers may download a file with all plays – or they may download them individually.

Linking to Outside Content

This page links to a related blog post. If a teacher wants to read more, she can. The possibilities are endless. You can link to Pinterest, articles, videos, or whatever you need.

Sharing Related Links

In addition to links on pages, I like to see all related links on one page. Again, this makes it easier to find resources later.

You can create New Google Sites unit plans to fit your needs. For example, a standards-based unit might be organized around concepts or day by day.

Previews Posted on the Internet

As a TpT seller, I appreciate the opportunity to post a preview of this unit on the Internet. I simply duplicate the site, make some changes, and post it for all to see.
