This first section is SMART activities I have created or polished up for you which are guaranteed to be awesome.

This one I did not make I found it but it is still awesome. This is a template for a game where students pick a circle and it links to a question. You plug in the questions and answer choices. I had to move the answer down to the bottom of the screen to get it to work correctly. Oh and this works with throwing a koosh-ball at the screen as well if your board reacts to touch.
Here is one I made over Texas History
This is my take on the Koosh-Ball game and takes it… “Under The Sea!” Plug in your questions and answer choices then launch this Google slides activity for tons of fun. To kick it up a notch attach your koosh-ball to one of those little kids fishing poles!
US History Version Exploration and Colonization
Strike Zone is the coolest thing ever! Take me out to the ball game! I made this in Google Slides. It works like trashketball. The teacher asks students questions from vocab, an activity, or a study sheet. If the student gets the question correct they get to pitch the koosh-ball at the screen. If they hit the strike zone they earn a point for their team.
Take your students to the virtual back yard and play some cornhole. It works like trashketball. The teacher asks students questions from vocab, an activity, or a study sheet.
