Students can learn from board games if the games are carefully selected to captivate as well as educate. Unfortunately, not all games are captivating. The key to Educational Board Games is to make learning purposeful – not just fun.

In the past, teachers were often reluctant to use . The educational games were often boring and students would not have a good learning experience because they were not interested in playing the game.

Over the past five years, more high-quality have been introduced that combine the fun, content and playing experience that will capture a student’s attention. Teachers are now increasing their use of board games in schools as a teaching tool. Playing these new board games provides students with focus and purpose – they enjoy playing these games and are able to expand their knowledge or use what they have learned in their classroom.

Teachers should select that:

  • Teach or reinforce – Look for games with useful information that echoes what is being learned in school. Adventure games with maps and cultural information can be educational. Fast-paced with money (like Monopoly) give players maths practices by counting money and making change.
  • Are fun to play – The game needs to be engaging so that the student continues to concentrate on the information being presented. Games for the youngest students should be easy to understand since they cannot read.
  • Kids want to play – The game should be quick to set up and fast to play. The game itself should have a visual look and rules that are exciting and interesting.
  • Are sturdy – The game board and any game cards should be laminated. Students are less likely to play with games that have dog-eared cards or a damaged game board.
