Free games for tutor time
Does tutor time seem to last forever? Are you looking for fun, free learning games for your students to play? What2Learn provides thousands of free to access interactive learning games which your students will enjoy at the same time as learning.
Sign up for full accounts at What2Learn and take this enjoyment to another level through our underlying simulation game – Farmer Karma.
Each of your tutees will have their own virtual farm to manage and care for as they compete against each other to see who can be the most successful farmer. They will need to manage a chicken yard, crops, a dairy herd, a campsite and more. In doing so they will need to carefully manage their environment and finances, as well as overcoming a range of problems that will come their way.
The real educational value of this exciting tutor-time activity is that to carry out any actions on their farm they will need to spend credits which can only be earned by completing learning games. You can give your tutees free choice in the subjects they undertake or you might direct them to specific activities, from revision for modular Science exams to resources about Black History Month. You can even use the What2Learn game generator to create activities specific to the requirements of your students if you cannot find exactly what you are looking for amongst the thousands of ready-made games.
All of the game engines in What2Learn have been designed to engage and motivate students as well as to provide an effective means of helping them to learn a wide range of educational content. From fighting zombies and firing a man out of a cannon to being quizzed by a Buddhist monk in the Tibetan mountains, the activities will be consistently fresh and exciting for your students. With over 60,000 learning games (and growing daily), there will be plenty for your tutees to learn as they battle it out to see who can run the best farm.
