Created by award-winning educators, these easy-to-learn, giggle-as-you-go games are designed to be both fun and educational. These activities in reading, logic, science, measuring, listening, social studies, and math are the perfect complement to your K-5 curriculum.
Get the fun and the learning started with games such as:
Bug Bite: Players flip over vocabulary word cards and slap the table when a bug card comes up. Whoever slaps first reads all the words and then keeps the card. The child with the most cards wins!
Bull's-Eye Feather Math: Children blow feathers around a bull's-eye game board with straws as they sharpen their multiplication skills.
Geography Baseball: Players find map locations that are “pitched” to them. The more “hits” they get, the faster they score runs.
Fishy Facts: Players snag paper fish with a fishing pole and hook. If they can answer the question on the side of the fish, they score.
. . . and many more!
BONUS: Games are ranked for noise levels!
