August 2020 Game Library Updates!

K-12 Educators Aug 4, 2020

Somehow we have already arrived in August, which means the 2020-2021 school year is fast approaching!

The new year brings about new challenges for both students and staff. Start off the year on the right foot by sending your staff on a scavenger hunt to stay up to date with school policies and get to know each other. Get your students excited during the first week of school by sending them on an active get-to-know-you game. Even parents can be included in the back-to-school excitement! Rather than fill out a questionnaire about their child, parents can participate in a GooseChase Game.

While it is all fun and games to start off the school year in an exciting way, we can’t forget about the learning students are going to do! Increase student literacy skills through our newly added Fairy Tale Scavenger Hunt or help your science students get a better understanding of how our Earth's surfaces change through our Oh no! Erosion! Game.

Think these games may be of use to you in your classroom? Create an account and add any of the games below directly to your Game Manager. If you’re new to GooseChase, check out our Getting Started Package that's full of helpful resources!
