How to add activities from Activity Banks into a Nearpod

Activity Banks or the Activity Library allows teachers to seamlessly add premade standards-aligned Tiem to Climb, Matching Pairs, Draw It, and Drag & Drop activities into a Nearpod. Nearpod's Activity Banks has 2,200+ premade activities to use for any K-12 subject or customize as needed.

With Nearpod's Activity Banks teachers can:

  • Use quick stand-alone activities to check for student understanding on the fly
  • Reduce lesson creation time by adding ready-to-use standards-aligned activities to any Nearpod
