Are you having trouble getting your children to grasp certain classes like Maths, English and Geography? The internet is rife with fun educational sites for your kids. Kids hate doing their homework because it’s so boring, but most kids love to play games.
The good news is that there are a ton of educational sites disguised as games. You just need to know where to look. Here’s a list of 5 sites I’d recommend you try out. The best part is that they’re free and no sign up is required.
In Funbrain’s kids center, you’ll find a limited selection of games. That means you won’t have to waste your time looking for the right games though. They’ve got number and word games. In addition, you can search for games according to grade. They’ve got games for kindergarteners all the way through to grade 8.
Another website that lets you search for games and facts for primary school kids through to grade 8 is Fact Monster. This site is primarily an information hub though, so it’s not just about fun and games. Kids can learn science facts, geography and may even find motivation to do their homework through Fact Monster’s homework center.
Poki Math games
Poki’s massive collection of games never fails to impress. Kids can come here to play any game their hearts’ desire, but they can also come here to learn through games. There’s a large collection of math games you can find here. If Math isn’t what you’re looking for, there are plenty more educational games you can look through as well.
KA, also known as Knowledge Adventure, also has quite a few educational games you can browse through. Customize your search according to grade, subject, age or have a look around the arcade. I like how they have popular classics like Hangman that I used to play on paper when I was a kid.
National Geographic kids
Most of us know the National Geographic from TV, but did you know that they also have a website for kids? The direction media is taking lures us to go online more than it tells us to switch on the tele. The next time you find your kid complaining that he or she doesn’t know much about wildlife and geography, tell them to have a go at the National Geographic’s games.
