Legends of Learning helps teachers make their classrooms fun, engaging, and productive learning environments through research-driven, curriculum-based science games. Teachers can access thousands of games for middle and elementary school (grades 3-8).
The games span three subject areas — Earth and Space, Life, and Physical Sciences — via 146 learning objectives. Legends of Learning games align to the NGSS standards and select state standards, including GSE, SOL, and TEKS.
Science Games – Current Offering
In addition to the games, teachers can find thousands of assessment items, and select PhET simulations for elementary and middle school students. Both Elementary and Middle School offerings are broken out across three primary sciences:
Research-Driven Science Games
Efficacy is a big issue when it comes to online education technology. This is equally true of games as any other digital tool. That’s why Legends of Learning CEO Vadim Polikov conducted original research with Vanderbilt University before launching the company.
The report — “Substantial Integration of Typical Educational Games into Extended Curriculum,” published by the Journal of Learning Sciences — demonstrates that game-based learning not only increases student engagement, but also improves content mastery as well as comprehension time. Interested parties can see a summary of findings via this infographic.
The resulting science titles used the Vanderbilt model to create more than 800 short, fun curricula games for the classroom. Since then many teachers like Caitlin Unterman, Scott Beiter, and Lisianna Wilson have experienced similar results in their classrooms.
Making It Easy for Teachers to Use Science Games
Trying Legends of Learning is easy to do. The games are free for teachers who want to set up a complimentary account. There is no need to add any personal financial information.
With 800 games created for 90 science lessons across three primary subject areas, there is literally a game for every lesson. Go ahead see for yourself. Browse our library today!
