Countdown Timer

Here is a question I get every now and then: How do I embed a timer in a Google Slide?
Well the easiest, fastest, and my favorite way is to embed a YouTube video of a timer. Building a timer into your Slides presentation can help you move through a lesson more smoothly without having to leave your presentation to access a timer. These can be great for transition time, think pair shares, stations, and many more ideas. Below are the quick simple steps to accomplish this and look like a seriously cutting edge teacher.
