The assignment folder in Google Classroom makes it quick to find all student documents for an assignment at once. The assignment folder icon links to Google Drive. Google Drive has a “Classroom” folder. Within that folder is a folder for each class. Within each class folder is a folder for each assignment that has attachments.
Start in the Stream and click on the assignment title.
In the assignment grading page, the assignment folder icon is located under the “Done” and “Not Done” counts. Click on the folder icon to open Google Drive.
Google Classroom is simple to get started. Go to classroom.google.com, create a class, post an assignment and share the class code with students. There is no easier way to go blended. Here are a six things to click on that are not so obvious.

The class folder is located in Google Drive. It is a subfolder of the Google Classroom folder in Google Drive. The class folder icon is located in 2 places: class tile on the home page and on the About tab.
2. More Options Icon
On each post in the Google Classroom Stream is a more options icon (3 dots). Use the options icon to edit the post in the Stream.

In the left sidebar of the Stream is the class code to share with students. Reset the class code or disable students from joining the class by clicking on the arrow next to the class code.
