As your students become more excited with the approach of the Olympics, our new sports themed games provide a great tool for engaging students and enhancing their learning. Ten such games have been added to our game generator, including archery, track and field, sailing and cycling. Learn more here.
In addition to our new sports games to celebrate the events of the summer, there are twenty other learning games you can make with our game generator. These range from zombie boxing to balloon rides for teddy bears!
All you need to do is go to What2Learn’s game generator, choose the kind of game you want to make and then fill in the blanks with the questions and answers you want to see in your game. You can even see the scores your students get in the games you create.
This is a great tool for students to use to develop their knowledge and to test their friends with. Teachers can also use it to create great activities for use during lessons. By creating a bank of these games and bookmarking them, teachers can call them up whenever they are needed. They can also be shared with colleagues.
The types of games which can be created include:
- Quizzes which require students to type answers to given questions (thus developing spelling accuracy at the same time as enhancing knowledge).
- Hangman-style games.
- Anagram-based games.
- Interactive wordsearch games.
