Time to give Mom and Dad a break from teaching! Here are 5 websites that offer free educational games for children to learn and play. Learn about science, math, animals, storytelling, and more! There are plenty of activities to keep minds engaged.

1) EdHeads

Through corporate philanthropy, sponsorships, partnerships and donations, EdHeads provides exciting games and experiences that inspire today’s K-12 students to become the STEM leaders of tomorrow. We believe every student should have the opportunity to develop their potential and fulfill their dreams and career aspirations.


2) Sheppard Software

At our educational website, we have hundreds of free, online, learning games for kids. But anyone interested in online learning can use our site - we have so many subjects - (geography, math, animals, science, language arts, creative activities, health) and lots of levels for all abilities - loads of games and activities for learners of any age.


3) Green Ninja

The Green Ninja curriculum was developed by a team of nationally recognized university researchers and teachers who develop a method to engage students by applying science to solve real-world problems. The results show more engaged science students who perform better on assessment activities.


4) Mr. Nussbaum

MrNussbaum.com was developed with the idea that crucial concepts, themes, ideas, and fact sets taught in the classroom can be enhanced over the internet through interactivity. Furthermore, for teachers to have a reliable K-8 internet site to use in the computer lab or in the classroom, that likely covers one or many themes currently being taught. MrNussbaum.com offers dozens of interactive games specifically designed to pinpoint one or several essential concepts taught in elementary years, and dozens of research themes designed to make the process of gathering information interactive and enjoyable. MrNussbaum.com, however, does not just present information, but in addition, provides numerous interactive activities to complement the presentation of interactive information.


5) Fun Brain

Created for kids in grades Pre-K through 8, Funbrain.com has been the leader in free educational games for kids since 1997. Fun Brain offers hundreds of games, books, comics, and videos that develop skills in math, reading, problem-solving and literacy.
