Fling the Teacher

You can add a little game-based experience to your classroom or boardroom too!

You can create your own “Fling The Teacher” game (or choose from other games) by clicking over to the Content Generator website. In the classroom, invite students, working alone or in teams to compose questions and answers from a unit, lesson, or activity. These can be submitted to you in hardcopy format, or added to a Google document. The questions and answers can be copied and pasted right into the game form blanks. A few clicks and a couple saves  later and the Flash generator does its magic!

Use for review, biographies, historical events, experiment recap, scientific method, math computations and computational review, punctuation marks, state and world capitols–so many possibilities!

When the weather is hot go inside for educational games

As the temperatures creep higher and higher, outside activities are sidelined to the early morning hours.

What to do with the rest of the day?

Try some brain exercises and games!

Pull out a puzzle, dust off that deck of cards. Rumage and find all those scrabble tiles.

And remember your computer: digital, educational games can be huge tools for learning.

Here is a great website listing some of the best called Exercise Your Brain
