Integration Ideas

Flippity activities are useful for having students practice recalling content knowledge. Because they are customizable, they can be aligned to any subject area. Game formats can be fun and engaging, and the teacher tools can help with managing student progress. Students access the activities by clicking on a shared link. While the students all use the same link, each of them will engage in their own copy of the activity. Teachers can save the links and build a library of learning activities that can be reused as many times as desired.
