Everyone learns more when they are having fun. Games for the classroom keep students interested and engaged in the subject. Traditional classroom and playground games can easily be adapted to teach and review just about any part of the curriculum. PowerPoint templates have also made it easier to adapt popular TV game shows to review lessons and help memorization, but most of these games can be played with little or no technology. As an added bonus, games generally engage multiple intelligences, which makes the lesson accessible to more students. Students can study hard and play hard at the same time!
