Here are a few games that may appeal to learners who love facts and trivia.
Chomp (1st grade – 4th grade) – This is a great science game for young learners. Played like the traditional card game of War, this pits sea life against each other to see who’s at the top of the food chain.
Cardline (2nd grade – 6th grade) – This game requires players to arrange animals in order by size, weight, or lifespan. It’s fully of surprises and fun for kids who love facts. Plus, there’s a new version of Cardline called Globetrotter for those kids that love geography.
Linkology (3rd grade – 6th grade) – This game is all about making connections between science concepts. There are three versions: Solar System, Human Body, and Animals; so there’s sure to be something that sparks the interest of your learner!
Creatures (3rd grade – 6th grade) – This is one of my favorite games of all time. It’s a blend of facts about all sorts of creatures, fighting battles with creatures each player has created, and just plain silliness.
Fitz It (4th grade – 8th grade) – This is a great game generating items with common characteristics. The concept of the game is easy, but it gets more challenging as you go along.
Timeline (4th grade – High School) – Made by the same company as CardLine, this is a great game for kids who love keeping track of years. It also comes in multiple versions, including a Music and Cinema version released just this month.
Word Teasers: Funny Sayings (5th grade – High School) – This not only sparks conversation, but is full of information about the origins of commonly used expressions. And Sports Idioms was recently released with tons of idioms related to sports, their origins, and interesting facts.
