September 2021 Game Library Updates

We know you’re getting ready for another school year with so much unknown, but we hope it’s a comfort to know that however your students spend the year - in class, online, or a bit of both - being taught by passionate teachers like you means they’ll be making fond memories to last a lifetime. We can’t wait to help get your kids’ imaginations running - or flying!

September’s Game Library updates include tried and tested Back-to-School favorites from the Mission Bank for students and teachers alike: take a gander at the fun activities for faculty members in “Back to School Staff Extravaganza!”, and use “Student Mingling” and “New Here?” to help break the ice in class - especially important after the last year.

You’ll also see dynamic new GooseChases for Science (“Earth and Space”), Language (“Chase Down some Story Elements”), and History (“Gummy Bear Government Systems”), to help your kids get excited about hitting the books (or tablets) again.

Wishing you a first month back full of fun, fulfillment, and a wild GooseChase or two!
