Springboard for Classroom Activities

Try using StarrMatica's activities and resources as a springboard for traditional classroom activities. For example, as a whole class, complete StarrMatica's Guided Practice instructional animation in the Learn section of our Cause and Effect lesson.

After your students have practiced finding cards with matching causes and effects, have your students create their own cause and effect matching games using index cards. Then, pair your students to play matching and concentration games with their newly created cause and effect cards.

Web Browser Zoom Button

Did you know your web browser has a zoom button? When using StarrMatica's activities for whole class instruction with an interactive whiteboard or LCD projector, there are times when you may want to zoom in on smaller text.

In Internet Explorer, the zoom button is found on the lower right corner of your browser. In Safari and Firefox, click View in your toolbar and select Zoom In.

When using StarrMatica on an interactive whiteboard, keep in mind that the software program that came with your board also has a built in zoom button.
