Free Educational Flash games
Free flash educational games
The second blog post in the series of ideas from clusters is half written but it is taking a back seat while I just share a few fun and educational games I’ve been playing.
I followed a link on Twitter which took me to a directory of free flash games and there was an educational category. I had a go at playing quite a few of them and here are some of my favourites. Clicking on the link will take you to the site to play the game.
Tower blaster – probably my favourite game I played. Very strategic – have to get the blocks in correct order before computer team.
Could see the kids loving this one but I am hopeless at games involving mixed up letters. Still others will do better than me I expect.
A very simple game to teach young children to match uppercase and lower case letters with Pooh Bear.
This one looks to have been designed for med students and involves cutting open a knee for surgery but I could see older kids being fasinated as they learn how to perform the knee surgery. High level comprehension exercise with a real life context.
Brain Safari – a variety of problem solving games

These are games that you do not have to install to your computer and use a program called flash. I think you will understand after you check out the site. and abandonware is REALLY old games in which you cant find on the shelves anymore and are pretty much free to download online. so you could find games like lemmings and alladin for free. Sorry I dont have a good link to a place to get some abandonware since I dont like old games really.
If all your planning on doing is playing games from ten years ago then you wont need to but a new computer, but if you ever want to play something better then you should consider taking a look into the craigslist computer section for a better computer
Freebies In Our Industryby Belligerent
My husband and I work in two separate industries. He in consumer electronics and me in high-tech corporate marketing. In both of our careers, we've received many free items as gifts or samples. Both of our companies have no policy about samples & gifts. I'm kind of curious what other people receive as part of their jobs.
I think it's pretty cool that we can get these things because they are most items we would have normally purchased anyways. And then sometimes, we get duplicates or extras which we then pass onto family members or friends. Sometimes, if there's no one to pass these onto, I'll Ebay or barter them on CL
