Great collection of IWB activities for early years and primary students

There’s a plethora of great free content for IWBs on the net, so I’m choosing only to mention the websites that are a cut above the rest. Crickweb falls into that category.

It’s well organised with drop down menus into three main sections – Early Years, KS1 (Year 1/ 2 for Australian teachers) and KS2 (Years 3-6). Each section is sub-divided into subject areas and features bright snapshots of each activity as well as a brief description.

Although most of the content (as for many of the IWB sites) has a Literacy and Numeracy focus, it’s nice to see Science, SOSE and other subjects also represented.

The activities are flash-based so will work on any interactive whiteboard. This site would be a good introduction to using a whiteboard for new teachers.
