    Educational flash games?

    Are there any flash games that I could let the kids play during down time? Rather than the usual drivel, I thought that some of you may know of some games with even a vague educational slant.

    You've gotta love Fantastic Contraption: A fun online physics puzzle game. Addictive and educational.

    Content Generator allows you to create quizzes for the kids and then lets them play some game when they answer the quiestions right. At least then the games are on task and you have control on what is being learnt/tested.

    We use it on our VLE, it's had a good response from teachers.

    Try's Mr G's Computer Club

    I've been running a lunchtime computer club for nearly 4 years and this is their launch page. Sadly some pages no longer work and quite often get blocked by our proxy server. It needs a bit of an update and tidy up too.

    NOTE: Subject to change and may well move to another URL in the future.

    Also try my Game bookmarks on Faviki. Again all subject to change and URL may well move too.
