One of my favorite websites for interactive websites to use on the SMART Board or in the computer lab.

National Whiteboard Network
K-8 Literacy, Math and Science UK site.  The navigation on this site is a little tricky but the site has more SMART Notebook lessons to download than any other website I have seen (other than SMART Technologies’ website.  It also has wonderfully engaging Excel activities, Power Points and other resources to download.  Many are in Zip files.  Navigate by starting at the front page on SITE MAPS.  Choose grade level.  Next choose subject and topic.  Downloads will be on right-hand side in the box.  Place cursor over icons so you can determine which download is SMART Notebook.  You can also search by seasonal package.  Go underneath the Title on the front page.  Click LITERACY or MATHEMATICS.  Click on either the packages (Autumn, Summer, Spring) or search by Year.
