Games Across the Curriculum: Christmas Gift Suggestions

 

 

games across the curriculum


Homeschooling is more fun for MANY reasons, but one reason it that we can play games instead of use curriculum.  Here are some great ideas you can give as Christmas gifts. Then in January you can incorporate games across all subject areas!

In my homeschool, we scheduled a few hours every Friday just to play games. Sometimes they loved the games (Diplomacy!) and other times they tolerated the games (any Art game) but they were ALWAYS thankful to have a break from the daily grind.

Read this long list of ideas below. You'll find games for English, Math, Social Studies, Science, Foreign Language, Fine Art, and Physical Education. Plus a list of just-for-fun, super-cool board games for teens.

Just so you know, this post contains affiliate links. If you click and buy I may make a few pennies, but sadly, not enough for a latte. This does not affect the price for you at all!
