Educational Games on the Web

As any educator, I spend hours trolling the internet for games that are both educational and appealing to my hard-to-please seventh graders. However, this week I unleashed 48 seventh-graders onto the Web with instructions to identify and evaluate some educational sites they felt fit the aforementioned criteria.

Their favorites?

Brainpop, Quia, and Funbrain were frequently mentioned. Coolmath was popular, although even the kids commented that the games "could use more math."

Other sites of interest included: - let's kids compare their math and science scores with students worldwide
BBC Maths File - math games with an amusing twist (what is Hypatia doing?!)
