In the previous post, we showed you how to make and use a digital magnetic board with poetry. Now, we want you to see these boards can be fun for any subject. Add a background image of something to be labeled or identified such as the parts of a plant, heart, skeleton, etc. Make the names of the parts and let your students place them where they go. Once you have the words, you may copy the slide and use them again. Just insert a different picture or background. You can still add new words to the slide.
