A Series of Educational Sites: "E"...The Problem Site!

Innovative Connections by Ann Marie Smith Games, Strategies, PrintablesI landed on another fun site you may/may not know about...
The Problem Site!
Students will jump all over extra computer time to play free online educational games! They can also engage in lots of other fun interactive skill-polishing activities on The Problem Site!
Just to give you an idea, here are a few games offered on the site:

  • Picture Word Game
  • Hangman
  • Secret Number 2
  • Zero Gravity Connect Four
  • Subtraction Triangles
  • The Pirate's Map
  • Treasure Hunt
A Series of Educational Sites at Innovative ConnectionsMy thoughts?
I must say that I am pretty impressed with how many avenues of topics and levels this site covers. It really get students to think, as it did me. There's a lot to gain from extra problem solving activities and good brainteasing challenges.  I love that it also has daily online puzzles, a reference/resource page to use in research and other projects, printables to easily and quickly create, and brainteasers! Just let them explore and see what they like! I think you'll find something for most any student. 

Why use interactive sites in the classroom?
We all have students, or perhaps children, that love interactive games and playing on the computer! Let them utilize the site when extra time allows them use on computers or when you just want to give them some extra challenge time! Computer time is always a great reward or incentive for promoting good classroom behavior or achieving goals academically!

Have you heard about it? Let me know what you think about the site or if you already utilize it! I'd love to know your thoughts on using computer time as a reward or motivator in the classroom too!

    2. Of course I don't mind! :) Incidentally, after all these years, I thought it was high time to create a Facebook page for The Problem Site, as a way of helping people keep track of new features on the site, or just to give some feedback, so if you or any of your readers are on FB, you can like the site here: Thanks again for the link. :)
