TheWeek.com posted an article about the best educational game website for kids. Playing the games at the following websites will stimulate the intellect and inspire children to be intellectually adventurous:
Wiglingtonandwenks.com lets kids create an avatar to visit the past, where they complete tasks assigned by such historical figures as Marco Polo. The kids think they’re off in playland, but “the quest, as they say, is history.”
Funbrain.com offers problem-solving games such as Grammar Gorillas. “Math and literacy challenges hide out behind awesome animation and sound effects.”
Thetoymaker.com lets kids choose from dozens of printable designs that they use to assemble paper creatures and toys. “If your kids can cut, fold, and glue, then reams of inventive fun are theirs for the printing.”
Exploratorium.edu/explore, the home page for San Francisco’s science museum, stimulates young minds by featuring original online exhibitions and “explanatory follow-ups for young answer-seekers.”
