This is a great website contains a series of educational games for free. These games cover several subjects such: language, science, geography and history, games and arts, and music games. These games are considered a very rich source for fun and help learners to develop their basic skills in each subject through playing the game. From my perspective I recommended this website in particularly for children in elementary and middle school.

i like the site. I know that my administrator would be concerned with a tying of standards... The good news is that the games can be used to supplement learning and are interactive in nature.

Technical Remarks:

Don't care for the ads... But I guess the games are free for a reason!

This site is wonderful for young students who are excited to supplement their classroom learning through games and activities. The interactive nature of the website shows that learning can be engaging and fun. Having games available to play online as well as printable items accommodates all educators.

Technical Remarks:

The graphics used in each game are different and exciting. They are visually stimulating to the students.

Great website posted, I like the interactive games it offers which happen to be very educational for children, unlike the other worthless “Video/Internet” games, kids are getting dragged into, games which contain graphic materials and vulgar language that can easily be picked up or absorbed by kids. I like the idea of guiding kids from an early age to be engaged in educational games, those that promote balanced thinking and positive upbringing. Sarmad Alkhayatt

Hello Manasa, I like the game that you chose to review. I'm sure that elementary school children will enjoy the games on the site and learn something from them too.

Technical Remarks:

Even though graphics have taken a great leap forward, games with the type of animated action exhibited on the site still hold up with younger children. Thanks for pointing out the site. Tim
