  • The huge selection of available boards and activities on BoardmakerShare and the powerful search built into the site, allow you to find whatever you are looking for.



    1. Start by pulling down the Activities menu and selecting Find an Activity.

    2. In the Search By text box, type in a keyword (or keywords) to help identify the file for which you are searching.


      If you want to further refine your search, use the drop-down lists in the search box to select a category and grade level for your search. (When you select a category from the Category drop-down list, the options in the Sub Category drop-down list will change to reflect the category you have chosen.)


      If you really want to narrow things down, try selecting the Advanced Search link in the upper right corner of the search box. That gives allows you to search by version, whether the boards it interactive and more!


    3. When you have selected all of your search options, click the Search button. The files that meet your search criteria will be listed below.


    4. To download or find detailed information on any file listed, click on the file’s title to thumbnail image. A File Information window will open and provide you with lots of options for what you can do with the file. If you decide you want to add the file to your My Activities area, click the Add to My Activities button. If you would like to download it immediately, click on Download Activity. Use your browser’s Back button to get back to your search results.

  • The new site navigation makes it easy to see all of the files contributed by one individual. Once you find one file from that person, look for the author's username and click on it. That will take you to their public profile page that will list all of the files they have shared publicly.
