REVIEW:
Students will enjoy the interactive learning games and teachers will appreciate the supplement to classroom instruction. Many popular games are available, including word search, cross words, hang mouse, and a quiz game. The word search offers users the option of choosing the difficulty level, the topic (which ranges from chemistry to dinosaurs to geography), and whether or not to play against the clock. Hang mouse, a variety of hangman, offers hundreds of topics and thousands of words, while the match game offers sets of themed cards for matching. Users can choose the skill level and the topic to review. In the quizzes, users can choose from different sets of questions such as the animal kingdom, staying healthy, and antonyms and synonyms. This is a great way for students to learn or review vocabulary and have fun while doing it.
