The Educational Games
The educational games in the classroom present interesting chances to students to learn while engaging in competitions. These games can take different types and can be applied to many school subjects. There are definite benefits to incorporating educational games into the classroom.
  1. Engage All Students - Members in the games have a motivation to win which keeps them tuned in to the lesson and learning throughout the activity. Games also allow them to interact with the material in a hands-on method, instead of being presented with the information and asked to memories it.
  2. Promote Teamwork - By engaging in game, students have the occasion to practice working cooperatively , and they must respect their teammates and work with these individuals to the end or solve a problem, as in the real world, they may have to work with people they don't like, just like in classroom games.
  3. Build Firm Sportsmanship - Sportsmanship is the ability to respond with grace to situations of victory and defeat. Individuals who show good sportsmanship don't pout at a loss or show any obvious signs of anger with their defeat. Likewise, winners do not become excessively arrogant. As students engage in an educational game, they develop the necessary skills to be a good sports person.
  4. Practice Problem-Solving Skills- Success in many classroom games requires problem solving. To win, students must figure out an answer or navigate a puzzle, that will provide them with the opportunity to practice and hone their problem-solving skills and the more they practice, the better they will become at critical thinking.
  5. Elementary students learn by being actively involved in the educational games that require active participation and focus attention on the academic skills being taught as children learn more when they find the task enjoyable, especially if the game involve hands-on components. 
       The benefits include:
  • Visual cues used in games activate visual learning. Students who are visual learners are skillful at recalling facts and concepts when they are presented with visual cues.
  • Auditory learners benefit from the discussions used in many educational games as well as the use of music, rhymes and lyrics. 
  • Verbal and communication skills are sharpened as students learn to follow directions, complete tasks and express themselves during the game. 
  • Math skills are developed while the students strategize and calculate moves in the game, that’s sharpening their mathematical reasoning and learning to predict outcomes.
  • Social-skill development as students learn to take turns and settle conflicts. Social interaction also develops conversational and negotiation skills.
