Don’t Fear the “S” Word!
It’s time to revolutionize the way we see and play school games, don’t you think? Look, we understand that even though school can be fun, it’s also nice to break out of those double doors after the bell rings and play around with your friends. But what if you could do both – keep learning and enjoy a fun new game? It’s not like you’re short of options, either. Even before the dawn of the arcade games era, the gaming industry experienced a small surge in the subcategory of unblocked school games for kids. As early as 1971, schools all over the place had Oregon Trail loaded onto their computers! In that same spirit, combining fun with learning, we’ve dedicated this free category to interesting and engaging online school games.
Why School Games Matter
Research shows that, when you actually enjoy what you’re learning, you will acquire more information and retain it for longer. Plus, adding educational content to video games is a great way to keep kids interested, because games use specific cues and triggers to help the stimulate the release of dopamine in the brain – that’s why they’re addicting! See where we are going with this? By combining school topics with video games, we’ve made learning a whole lot easier, more fun, and more effective. It’s not just one type of learning, either. Thanks to these online school games, kids can sharpen their smarts in the following areas:
Who likes reading out of textbooks written by dead guys every day? What if you could read cool stories that actually interested you? With the right writing, a game can hold your interest for hours. Even better, well-designed school games will challenge your ability to analyze content, interpret hidden (or at least implied) meanings, make important deductions, and flex other important reading comprehension skills. All while having fun!
