Default importing text from WORD over multiple slides


I am new to this forum.
I teach children "Personality Development", and that includes General Knowledge. So I source info from the internet and copy it into a WORD doc. Now I need to create a PowerPoint SlideShow for the children.
Thus far, I have been copying (from the Word doc) and pasting (in PP) a few paragraphs at a time. This is a very tedious process, as one has to judge how much matter will fit on a slide, which is not that easy.
I did read somewhere about creating a Text Box, but the procedure did not seem so simple.

My question is whether it is possible to (after creating a number of blank Slides) copy the entire 4 or 5 pages of Word doc text, and paste/import it into PP such that the text automatically flows from one (blank) slide to the other.

Any help would be appreciated.
