Many of you already know about Starfall.  For those who don’t, it’s an excellent free site to encourage children to learn to read while having fun.  This site is great for children learning their alphabet letters, learning the sounds of letters, and learning how to read words or short stories.

Free Online U.S. Geography Games

Sheppard Software.com is a wonderful site with FREE online geography games to teach students of all ages the following:

  • Names of the 50 United States
  • Location of each state on the map
  • Capital of each state
  • Geographic regions of the U.S.
  • Lakes of the U.S.
  • Rivers of the U.S.
  • Bays, seas, & other ocean features surrounding the U.S.

A  helpful tip: Their site mentions at the top what to do if a game is not working.  The game did not work for me, and so I used their tip to use the Mac version even though I have a PC.   It worked!
