Its not easy for teachers to find interactive and educational games that their whole class get play together. Educational Insights works with teachers to create games and activities that are not only fun, but educational for their classrooms. Many of their games are even designed by teachers. They've made it their business to find the most exciting, educational toys out there, and bring them all together in one great website. One if the newest products they have released is an exciting game called Batter Up! that teachers can use for almost any school subject.
Batter Up! is a fun and reusable game that is a great alternative to a whiteboard. You divide the class room into two teams. There are a whole bunch of player pieces. You can write the kids names on them, and wipe them off when you're through. Once its all set up, the teacher can ask a question on any subject. If the student answers correctly, they get to spin the ball to determine the "play". Just like in regular baseball, they can get a single, double, triple or home run. The team with the highest score at the end of the game will be a winner. Its a fun and interactive way to get kids excited about learning.
Batter Up! is only one example of the educational games you can find at Educational Insights for both family and classroom use. This awesome company has been providing us with the best in educational games for years. Make sure you thank them by visiting their face book fan page and becoming a fan. They are only a few hundred away from 6000 fans. Help them meet this goal before the new school year begins!
