Games are a fun way to teach kids

January 20, 2010 by David

Kenneth Scott makes the argument that although some games don’t teach specific┬ácontent they do help kids practice other skills like reasoning and reading. Also, most of the time if a kid is having fun playing a game they don’t realize they are learning something too! We like to call this “Ninja Instruction”, which is the best type of instruction.

Personally, though, I learned a ton from Carmen Sandiego when I was growing up. How else do you get a kid to read a World Atlas for goodness sake?
