      From what I have discovered, whether it is a middle school, elementary school, or high school, students love to get up and interact with the SMART board. I would say create your own SMART notebook activity. You can add interactive features. For example, if students were learning something like identifying simple shapes, students could go to the SMART board and touch the shapes that correspond with what you are saying. Another thing I could think of is letting the students draw on the smart board. Give them a situation that you want them to represent then let their creative juices flow!

      A GREAT utility is the SMART exchange. If you go on there you can search different SMART board activities created and submitted by different collaborators. You can search by grade or even what you want the students to learn! This saves a lot of time when it comes to creating an activity because these are already pre-made.

      I know with me in the middle school, if students get to interact with the SMART board they are more likely to pay attention and learn! I really hope this helps!!

        At Smart Exchange look for calendars. They have several choices. I've taken parts of each one and put them together to fit my classroom. Activities include daily counting with ones, tens, and hundreds. Counting money, weather, graphs, and an interactive 100 chart.
