Activity Builder

Activity Builder gives you free range to invent and create an activity in a way that it best suits your own lesson/subject. Once the activity is built it could be used as a review activity, addition to a lesson to reiterate a concept, or simply to have fun. Watch the video provided below to learn how to set up the Activity Builder using Notepad.

Word Guess

The last activity for this mini-course is Word Guess. Word guess is very similar to the game Hangman. Who doesn't like playing Hangman? Instead of doing it on the black board, have students get interactive and play it using the SMART Board. Students could virtually have tomatoes be thrown at a man, score goals in soccer, or play basketball. This activity would be an activity that is educational yet fun at the same time.
