How to Assign a Digital Learning Activity in Google Classroom

Are you trying to teach via remote learning or digital learning and need some Google Classroom tips? I have some help for you here if you need to assign a digital resource in Google Classroom.

Note : You need to already have a Google Classroom set up in order to assign a resource to students.

Here is what my Google Classroom looks like. I am going to click on the Redhead Class to show you what to do.

Assigning with a Google Drive Link

Let's say I want to share this digital  telling time resource with students. I am going to click on it to show you how to grab the sharing link.
If I click on the share icon, on the top right, I can then copy the link and share it in classroom. That is one option. So let's put a pin in that for a minute and go to Classroom to see how to post an assignment.
In Google Classroom, I will click + Create and this menu will pop up. I am going to create a Assignment, the first option.
When you click "Assignment" a menu like this comes up. I called it "Telling Time" and just typed a quick sentence in "Instructions". Where the paper clip / "Add" is you can click it, and paste the link if you want. 

Here's what it looks like when you add a link.
On the right, you can also change the assignment to "ungraded" or change the point value. Note: You can also differentiate by clicking on "All students" and  a list of students will pop up. You can assign it to just a few students, or as many as you want.

With "Assignment" creation, note you can change or remove the due date (second picture below).
Now when you add a link, it will look like it does in the image below. Read on to see how, instead of pasting a link, you can grab the resource right from Google Drive!

Assigning with a Direct Link into the Drive File

You can also,  instead of clicking "Add" and "Link", click "Google Drive" to grab the resource right from your Drive.

A menu like this will pop up. I type "telling time" in the search box and find the resource I want, click add, and it is attached in Classroom.

And here is an example of what it will look like in the students' Google Classroom Classwork stream!
