Best points: Games on the Funschool site are divided into categories for children in preschool through sixth grade. Preschoolers might learn about subjects like colors and animal recognition, while the games teach fifth-graders about state capitals. You can search for games either by grade level or category, such as "reading/words/vocabulary" or "thinking skills." Not all the games are strictly educational one in the arcade section allows kids to mix their own songs from a selection of prerecorded drumbeats and melodies.
Projects of many types can be downloaded, including origami, crossword puzzles, word searches, connect the dots, and coloring pages. Kidsdomain and Zeeks offer games, chat boards, and information on activities such as camping and sports.
What you should know: The site has some advertising, including pop-up ads. It is also heavy on graphics, which may burden computers that have a slow connection.
