Games for Kids
I have featured Sheppard Software in past years, but they have added so many resources to the site that I thought it was time to mention it again. I just spend some time playing around and I really love the games. They are relevant and the graphics and fonts are just pleasing. Most of what I played with this time was science (food chain, producers and consumers, photosynthesis) but there are games for social studies, math, vocabulary, and more. This site has grown exponentially since I first featured it years ago.
