Share Activity links from Resource Library or Journal
Teachers can share activity/lesson links with teachers or students from the Journal Tab or Seesaw Library. To share links, tap on the [...] and select either Share Activity with Teachers or Share Student Link.

There are many ways that student Activity links can be helpful:

1. Teachers can paste Activity links into a Student Announcement as a way to tell students what to do each day or week. Once an announcement is sent, students will be notified and can tap the links to easily complete their daily Activities.
2. Teachers can also share student Activity links directly into Google Classroom or another learning management system.

Note: Student Activity links are specific to the Activity assigned to your class. Each Activity has a unique link for your class or subset of students assigned and links cannot be shared across multiple classes.

When students tap the link, they are brought directly to the Activity. Then they can:

  1. Add a response by tapping +Add Response.
  2. Finish their Draft if they have a draft response.
  3. View their completed response if they have already responded to the Activity.

When teachers paste the Activity Link in a web browser, they will be prompted to 'Save Activity' to their ‘My Library’ tab. Once the Activity is saved they can share it with their students or customize it for future use. If teachers are not logged into Seesaw, they will need to log in before the Activity will save.

If you want to share an Activity with another teacher who does not have a Seesaw account yet, no problem! The teacher can view the Activity from the Activity link or they can visit the Seesaw Public Community Library to browse any grade level, subject area, and curriculum.
