What is the Activity Builder?


The Activity Builder enables you to create matching and sorting activities, labeling activities, and games using your own content. It is flexible enough that it allows you to create very customized activities.

Using the Activity Builder, you choose an object (called an "activity object") on a page as a "container" that is set to accept the answers that are correct and set to reject incorrect answers.

  • Press "Done" to complete setting up the activity. Save the file and enjoy.
Notes:
  • If objects are accidentally dragged into the wrong box, just drag it into the trash can.
  • If all the "correct" objects have been added to the "Accept" box, you can use the "Add All Remaining" button to fill the other box with the objects to reject.
  • After completing the activity, go to Edit > Reset Page to restore the activity to it's original state to play again!
