The Smithsonian Science Education Center offers this collection of nine interactive online games for elementary and middle school students. These games are designed to engage young learners with a range of topics relating to life, earth, space, and physical science. For example, in the Weather Lab, students are prompted to make weather forecasts based on information about ocean currents and air masses. When students make accurate predictions, they will view an animation of the predicted weather event. In Aquation: the Freshwater Access Game, students must figure out how to provide freshwater access to communities around the world. Some of these games require certain plugins, which are noted in each game description. All games are also available as a download in the App Store or Google Play. Each game is accompanied by a short description and labeled by subject and grade level.
