Knowledge Adventure

This is a website that stresses "play" as an invaluable tool in the learning process. The main stated objective of the site is to approach the learining process as an adventure. The mission statement makes a compelling argument for the inclusion of "play" as an asset to responsiveness of children of all ages to the learning experience. The site does have many educational games that are available for purchase, however there is a lot of useful and practical information on the site that is available free of charge. The site offers many educational and fun activities for children from toddlers to teens. All of the activities involve little or no cost and combine fun, adventure, and education. I would recommend this site to elementary education majors, teachers, home-schoolers, and parents as a very useful resource.

Hangman (one of the games on the site) is an educational and entertaining game that will enhance the students’ spelling and vocabulary.  The student is given an unrevealed word that is two to five letters in length.  The student has seven opportunities to choose the wrong letter that is not in the current word.  The student is given ten rounds of new words to complete. The student can play this game multiple times and receive a new group of words each time.  The student will benefit by being introduced to new words, critical thinking skills reinforced by figuring out the word, and enhancing spelling.
