Thanks, Michal! That is a great idea!
So far, most of what I've found has been stuff I could do with
PowerPoint, so I was kind of disappointed. I haven't heard of
Glogster or any of these other links, so I'll definitely check them
out! I have a lot of ideas of what I would like to do with the
SmartBoard, but no idea how to make them happen, yet. I really just
need some time to play with the thing! (Free time? What's that?!?!?
Thanks for teh info about Glogster and nga.gov. I'm going to go check

I also use http://www.nga.gov/kids/kids.htm with my students quite often (don't forget, a SmartBoard is supposed to be interactive, & not just a whiteboard for presentations! Let the students manipulate the board objects whenever you can!). Jeopardy games, among others, are always fun - just google them & you'll come up with a ton of pre-made games that all you have to do is alter the information to suit your purposes. I haven't done this yet, but one of my goals is to take a famous artwork (think Seurat's Sunday in the Park - I know, not the exact title, but it's been a tough week & I'm already brain dead!), separate the images via Photoshop, & have the students recreate the painting. I think it would be interesting for discussion on perspective& balance for students to decide if Seurat was successful or if the painting would be better balanced visually by rearranging the figures.
