Slides Dice

Roll Dice in Google Slides

One of my favorite sayings is “I don’t use Google Slides to give information, I use it to GET information.” Using Google Slides to make a presentation is probably the least likely thing I do with Google Slides. It’s an awesome collaboration space! While using Google Slides in edit mode rather than presentation mode your students may have need to roll some dice. Maybe for math, maybe for a Slides game you created, maybe as a way to take turns… who knows!


I coded using Google Apps Script a dice menu into the Google Slides. You must make a copy of my Google Slides to have the dice menu. This copies the code I wrote into the Slides. This is a completely blank Google Slides. Create your Slides activity or copy and paste your slides from a previous presentation into this template so you have the dice menu.

After making your copy of the Google Slides wait a second and notice an extra menu next to the Help menu appears. Click on the menu and you can choose to roll one die or up to five dice.

A pop up window will let you know the outcome of the dice roll.

That’s it! Just a way to roll dice while using Google Slides in edit mode. Have fun, enjoy!
