Games & Fun Stuff Master List

December 6, 2007 @ 5:22 am | Filed under: Fun Learning Stuff

Too many posts! Too many links! If you go through my Fun Learning Stuff archives, you find oodles and boodles of links to online games and things. But that’s a lot to wade through. Allow me to spare you the wading.

Free online word games:

Babble (a combination of Boggle and Scrabble)

Neopets Word Poker

Eight Letters in Search of a Word (both this one and Word Poker are "see how many words you can make out of these eight letters" games)

Scrabulous (online Scrabble, and yes, it is fabulous)

Quiddler

iSketch (like Pictionary) (beware the public rooms—create your own private room and invite friends)

New! Karen just reminded me of FreeRice.com, a charity-linked vocabulary game that devoured a thousand grains of my time last week

Puzzle/logic games:

Blokus

Set

History, math & science:

BBC History Games (a whole bunch of fun stuff here)

Ancient Greece game at Snaith Primary

Absurd Math (Jane’s favorite)

Edheads

Test your reaction time with the sheep game

Geography games & links at Studeo

Tetris with the United States

Music & art:

Note reading drill

Art lesson plans from the Getty Museum

Mark Kistler drawing lessons on YouTube

and on his website

Not games, but cool:

Earth Album (a Flickr/Google Maps mashup)

Journey North (especially the Mystery Class project that begins in January—we’ve had such fun with it the past two years)

  1. Love it, Love it,Love it!

    Thanks so much.

  2. Oh, how timely! It seems like Advent is a good time for a change of pace in our learning.

    (In other words, “Mom’s too busy with Christmas prep to mess with that math lesson, dear, so could you go figure out something educational to do on your own?”)

  3. Thanks for listing the Online Games. We’re taking a Christmas break from our lessons, but I still want the kids to get educated. My son will enjoy the Word and Logic Games.
