Interactive classroom activities can be a great way to get students excited about learning, particularly in online or blended learning environments. These educational activities can be used as easily on a laptop or tablet as on an Interactive Whiteboard in the classroom.
These activities are also standards-aligned and help build important skills in math, spelling, conflict resolution, and more. They can also be combined with our pre-made lesson plans to help educators build a versatile online learning curriculum. Our platform is also an ideal Interactive Whiteboard software for creating your own custom lesson plans, enriched with images, tools and widgets.

Gynzy activities are specifically designed for student participation, while also reinforcing core skills such as spelling, sequencing, comparing & contrasting, logical deduction and more.
We encourage teachers to invite students up to the board so that they have more and different kinds of opportunities to participate in class. This proactive approach will encourage students to interact with one another as they pool their knowledge to try and work through fun activities such as:
We spend a lot of time at school, and sometimes a small diversion from standard coursework is to everybody’s benefit. Gynzy activities allow educators to introduce some fun into class while still reinforcing skills and concepts that are critical to academic success.
Sometimes it’s nice to start the day with a quick warm-up to get students’ blood pumping. Morning Energizers offers multiple prompts and activities designed to get students moving around. There are also fun drawing prompts that will encourage students to get creative to get the creative juices flowing. All of these prompts are enriched with our Spin the Wheel widget.
Other activities are aimed at getting students interacting with one another. Context Clues gives students 11 challenging exercises in which they must try to infer the meaning of new vocabulary through surrounding details. Sequence Stories gives students four jumbled images to be arranged into a logical timeline, encouraging discussions about past experiences.
We continue to add new activities to Gynzy because we know that they can unlock the potential of your Interactive Whiteboard. Engage your students today by utilizing the interactive nature of your smartboard!
Classroom activities and warm-ups are useful tools in engaging students and inspiring them to take an active interest in the concepts being discussed.
