Activities that Engage and Educate
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:
- Hangman so students can practice spelling
- Spot the difference to practice visual recognition
- Photo of the day to better understand geography
- Math Puzzles to practice logical deduction and mental math
- More activities for your Interactive Whiteboard, freely available on the Gynzy library
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.
Classroom Warm-Up Activities to Start the Day
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. Inviting students up to the Interactive Whiteboard is also a great way to encourage productive socialization. We encourage you to experiment to see what works best for your classroom.
