Great online educational Games



One of the great things about computers is their potential to help teach/ help us learn. One of my favorite categories of software is that of educational. I remember spending long hours going through a states and capitals game back on the atari 400 years ago. I have also been fond of language vocabulary drilling games more recently. The nature of the web is that now many good tools like this are available online, finding them is the problem.


A GREAT source for such online educational games is Sheppard Software. Most of the games that I saw are geography-oriented although, there is also a Chemical Elements game. One that I found that was pretty tough (even for someone who KNOWS where all the states are) is placing the US states on a map (VERY unforgiving margin of error….) For example with no border states to place it, try plopping Wyoming on the National Map within about 60 miles accuracy. Tricky…. There are geography games for other areas as well Good site to checkout.
