SMARTBoards and Edheads Interactive Games and Activities

Edhead_activities Here is a nifty site called Edheads that provides various interactive activities for your SMARTBoard interactive whiteboard.

"Edheads brings you high quality, free educational activities for your classroom. Edheads helps students learn through educational games and activities designed to meet state and national standards. We partner with various school systems in the United States, which help us research, design and test our activities every step of the way!"

I really like the Odd Machine activitiy as well as the Weather activity although your Middle School students will probably be drawn to the actual photos contained in the virtual surgery activities.

Be careful of all the ads that surround the activities.

These are flash-based resources that are a lot of fun to use on your SMART Board.  When using flash-based resources, I highly recommend that you use the Firefox Internet Browser and download the Flash Game Maximizer Add-On. This handy little add-on allows you to run flash activities in full screen on your computer. This is extremely helpful when viewing the activities on an interactive whiteboard. It may not work for all flash activities but it works for the majority of them.
