Game and Puzzle Resources

Let’s face it, we all love playing games. Yes, they have the potential of turning into World War 3, however, a few well-chosen games will add a new buzz to your classroom, and I mean a good buzz! It is a rare thing to hear children say: “Ah no, do we have to play a game?”  Apart from the obvious fun factor, games hold many benefits for your learners. Here are just a three:

  • Games support learning – your students are going to remember something that is connected to fun (not to say that your lessons cannot be fun   ).
  • Games build connections with each other – games break down barriers and the learners might well find themselves making new friends.
  • Games teach new skills – like critical thinking, how to be a team player, good sportsmanship, good communication etc.

I suspect when you introduce more games into your classroom that you are going to rather hear: “Can we play a game, pretty pleeeeease?”
Browse through our games on offer and find the ones that support your classroom goals and lessons. Have fun!
