Playing games in the classroom is a great way to get kids to learn — without them really knowing it! From tackling topics like history and spelling, to life lessons like patience and teamwork, board games have a number of educational benefits. In honor of National Scrabble Day, here are a few games that will entertain your classroom for hours, while also teaching them important facts and life skills.
It’s National Scrabble Day, so of course it had to be first on the list! Scrabble is a great way to get kids interested in spelling and vocabulary. Did you know, there are even national and international school tournaments of Scrabble! The best part is, you can play this with kids of all ages and skill levels.
Chess is a game of strategy, intellect, and memory, so it’s no surprise that multiple studies have shown that chess can actually raise a person’s IQ.
Trivial Pursuit is a game that breaks down trivia questions into six categories — geography, entertainment, history, arts and literature, science and nature, and sports and leisure. Players get to take turns rolling dice and answering questions about everything from famous athletes to the life cycle of a plant.
