After I read this post by my online friend, Jimmy, I made a note to myself to have my kids make up review games at the end of the school year. This was the week. (We only have 3 weeks left of school. We start in the HOT summer and break in the lovely spring.)

I assigned them to make a review game for history. My daughter made this colorful board game with tons of question cards that each had an assigned point value that sent you either forward or backward that many spaces depending on whether or not you answered correctly. She loves history and loves crafts, so she put a lot of effort into making this great.

My son does not like history or crafts, so he made his game on the computer. This is the first program he’s written. It’s only five questions, but I’m really happy he tried using what we’re learning about writing Javascript code. You can play the online game here. BTW I needed a place to post the code online, so I used my son’s paper airplane website. Feel free to click around.

For a review of the elements for science, I had my kids play Go Fish with these element cards from another game. I just printed out the first two pages of element cards three times each. Then the kids made sets of three.

The rest of our review games are online games. Crossword puzzle for vocabulary, arcade game for science, matching game for history dates. There are lots of easy, do-it-yourself game makers online which I’ve written about before, so I won’t relist the links. But, I will give you the link for how my son and I are learning Javascript and can make that online quiz. We’re studying at codeacademy. I believe it will also teach some html and CSS. My son and I sit together every evening and do a section of the course. It’s all interactive and so lots of fun if you’re into that sort of stuff.
