Flippity.net

Check out Flippity.net.  This website allows you to customize and create many different types of activities (scavenger hunt, memory, snowman, etc…)  My favorite feature is the random name picker; check it out in the Edugif below!  It goes pretty fast, so if you would like me to help you use this tool, shoot me an email and I will come to you and show you how to incorporate it into your lessons.
