G is for Games

image34

Our family has always loved board games. Over the years, we have accumulated a LOT of them. Many typical family/ party games have educational value…Scrabble and other word games, games that involve counting money (or even just counting spaces for little ones), or anything that uses the mind, like Scattergories, Pictionary, or Trivial Pursuit.

We’ve also purchased quite a few specifically educational games to supplement our home school. Here are just a few of them…

Science:

Elemento (Chemistry)

True Science (Trivia Game)

SomeBody (Human body)

P1010757

Geography:

Global Pursuit

10 Days in Africa, Asia, Europe games

TransEuropa

P1010758

Art Deck (Famous Artists rummy)

Rummy Roots (Greek and Latin roots)

The Play’s the Thing (Shakespeare)

P1010759

Knights and Castles (Medieval History)

Hail to the Chief (Presidential Elections, US geography)

P1010760

Additionally, I’ve made my own games to reinforce what we’re studying. This takes a bit of time, but it’s the perfect way to review exactly what we’ve learned. Games are always a welcome alternative to a test! I’ve published many of these at Currclick to share with others….
