How to search and assign Activities

The Seesaw Resource Library is a growing resource of grade-level and subject-specific activities and includes the Seesaw Library, School & District Library, and Community Library

Browse free ideas that are ready to be assigned to your students today - or modify any Activity to meet the needs of your students. The Seesaw Resource Library was built to help all Seesaw teachers find high-quality lessons that inspire and deepen student learning.

🌟 Pro tip: if you're searching for an activity, use quotation marks around the activity name in the search bar! This can help you find exact matches if you know the title of the activity you're looking for. For example: "kindness matters" will retrieve only activities with "kindness matters" in the title.
