We love to use games as part of our homeschooling. We have many commercially made games, but I’ve made a lot of them too, to reinforce what we’re studying. Games keep Emily focused (a big deal for her!) and are great both for learning new material and for reviewing. Plus playing games doesn’t feel like “school!” I’ve published many of the games I’ve designed on Currclick. Most sell for $3.50 (or less if you buy several). They have to be printed on cardstock and question cards cut out and are then ready to go! Most are adaptable for a range of ages and grade levels. Here are some of my science games. Maybe one or more of these will fit into your curriculum this year!
Play The Insect Game to learn all about insects or to reinforce your current study of insects. Players answer questions to earn insect parts, attempting to be the first player to build a complete insect. This game is designed for 2nd to 6th grades.
Planets, Moon and Stars is a game for children in third grade and up. Players answer trivia questions about space while trying to be the first to collect all the planets in the solar system.
Climb the Vine: All About Plants is a question and answer board game that will reinforce your science curriculum. Players answer multiple choice questions about plant types, pollination, photosynthesis, trees, and more while racing to the finish line. Designed as a file folder game for grades 3-6.
All About Animals is an animal classification game for grades K-5. Players use picture cards or clue cards to categorize animals into the five major groups.
