Learning with FunBrain

Parents and teachers, are you looking for new ways to entertain and educate children? I recently came across FunBrain, a sister site of FactMonster and InfoPlease, that offers a variety of fun activities for grade levels K-8. Children can choose from a variety of interactive games, MadLibs (yay, MadLibs are still around!), web books and web comics, and other resources to improve reading and math skills. Not only is there a wealth of tools for children, FunBrain has teacher resources as well.Teachers can find games that best match a desired grade level or subject to make teaching fun!

You can find other useful sources on our Kids' Page too. Happy hunting & learning this new school year!
