Default How to have two slide appear and then return to the original slid without lots of slide duplications

Hi all,
Apologies, no doubt what I'm asking for has already been covered but I don't know what to search for. Many thanks for any help in advance.

I'm producing a ppt for teachers to use. Let's say slides 1/2/3 and 4 have activites for a class to follow. I want there to be a button on each slide which will launch an slide showing options for teachers to choose a quick assessment activity which they can use whilst talking about the page they are on. . They pick the activity and then on-screen instructions appear. The teacher will then click a button and return to the slide they were originally on.
I know how to do this, what I don't know how to do is to have only one set of 'options slide then specific assessment slide' in my powerpoint and THEN return to the slide the teacher was originally on. Is there a clever way around this or will I have to duplicate the assessment slides and then have each different one return to a different original starting slide?
If I was doing this on a webpage I'd simply have a 'open new webpage' which I could then use with the kids, close it down and the page I was originally working on would still be there. I don't think I can do this on ppt - but I hope you see the approach I'm trying to use.
I do hope this is clear.
Many thanks,

Create a custom show from each of the the assessment slide(s)

Make the link to the custom show and click show and return. The custom show will complete and jump back to the calling slide.

Many thanks for your reply. I wasn't even aware of that option. I'll have a look at it. Thanks for the help.
