My adult kids like to remind me every now and then of the things they learned, and still know, through playing educational games in our home school back in the day. There’s just something about learning while having fun…it’s the kind of learning that sticks, sometimes for a lifetime.
So I’ve been scouting the blogs and resources of other homeschoolers, looking for geography games that everyone seems to like. And I found some that kept appearing. Repeatedly. So I’m relying on the recommendations of others here. And rather than jot down some notes and wait and wait ’til I have my own personal opinion for each one, we’ve added these geography games to our More Products page now.
So far we have Mindware Brain Box (All Around the World), QuickPix, 100 Days in [country*], and Ticket to Ride [country*]. So really, just 4, although 2 of these have several versions for several different countries.
Since I don’t have personal recommendations for these (yet), I’m hoping that maybe someone else reading this does! If you have any experience with the games on this page, please let us know by commenting below! Things like what your kids liked/didn’t like, ages/grades you think it’s best for, how much you did (or didn’t!) learn, how many can play at one time, or even how long it takes to play. Whatever stands out in your mind.
Of course, you can always read the reviews at Amazon (the game links are affiliate links…see box in the right column!), but reviews from other homeschoolers/educators would be nice.
Have you played any of them? We’d love to hear what you have to say. Please comment below!
