September 2020 Game Library Updates

K-12 Educators Sep 1, 2020

September has officially arrived and we are back into the groove of the school year!

Teachers are at the front of their classrooms, students are back in their seats, rules and routines are being established, and most importantly, students are learning. This time of year often provides an opportunity for families to visit the school for an open house. Whether as a way to show off student work or welcome visiting parents, a GooseChase EDU family-friendly scavenger hunt can help accomplish each of these as a part of your Open House event. Our “Back to School Open House”, “Back to School Orientation”, or “Open House Extravaganza” games are perfect for these events.

Of course we need to continue to put emphasis on student learning! Both elementary and middle school students are improving their math skills each and every day. Help supplement your instruction with either our “Middle School Math” or “Geometry in Real Life” games! Math not your subject? Help students learn more about American history with the “Pre-Civil War Life” scavenger hunt.

New to GooseChase and wondering how an interactive scavenger hunt would be beneficial to student learning? Check out our “GooseChase for Student Engagement” game and see what it is all about!

If you think any of these games can be used 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 full of helpful resources!
