Mr. Nussbaum's Educational games

The link above is to a website that contains numerous interactive and educational games for students at all different grade levels.  There are games for math, science, geography, spelling, etc.  There are even some in Spanish.  There are great graphic and detailed instructions for each game so students will be engaged and able to understand what they are playing and learning. 
My favorite game so far is Tony's Fraction Pizza.  In this game, customers order pizza with different toppings (1/2 pepperoni, 2/5 mushroom, 1/10 cheese) and students need to show that on a pizza to serve the customer. 
An added bonus to this site is that it includes lesson plans and standard correlations with the games so that teachers can plan the games to go along with units of study and supplement or reinforce concepts for their students.
I highly recommend checking out this great site and trying some games with your class!


  1. This is a great resource. It's important to have creative and engaging tools to teach students, especially when the topics are challenging for first-time learners, like fractions. Thanks!

    1. I agree! I can't wait to try this with my class. Anything hands on is the way to go.

  2. Glad they seem helpful and interesting... Let me know what you think, if you try them out!
