My grandchldren and I have been enjoying the cool math games web site (see previous post).  My grandchildren call the Number Twins game the “bubble game”.  There is something very satisfying about popping all the bubbles.

 If you are looking for some games/activities to reinforce physics concepts, here are a few sites to explore.

Physics Games Net http://www.physicsgames.net/game/Shrink_It.html  offers a game called Shrink It.  The object of the game is to move an octagonal object past barriers by either growing or shrinking them.  I enjoyed it because it made me think. This site has commercial sponsors, so one must view short ads before playing.
