ActivInspire: Using the Fill Tool to Change Font Color

Did you know you can change the font color with the fill tool (paint bucket icon) in ActivInspire? As long as you choose a big, chunky font, you can change the color of the font of an ENTIRE word by clicking on any letter in the word with the fill tool. This is an easy method to make plain text on a flipchart into an interactive activity for kids. Have the kids color code text for:
  • Parts of Speech
  • Main idea/detail
  • Characters, setting, problem, solution
  • Keywords
  • New Vocabulary and Definitions
  • Prepositional phrases, clauses
  • Etc.
