The site was developed with the idea that crucial concepts, themes, ideas, and facts taught in the home can be enhanced over the internet through interactivity. MrNussbaum.com offers dozens of interactive games specifically designed to pinpoint one or several essential concepts taught in the elementary grades, and dozens of research themes designed to make the process of gathering information interactive and enjoyable.
By the way, there really is a Mr. Nussbaum — and I have to admit, I am not smarter than Mr. Nussbaum (this is actually a challenge on his site)! Perhaps you, or your kids are!
The site certainly has a lot to offer–a ton of information (do you know Idaho’s state bird?), MANY educational games (Math games, Science games, games in Spanish, etc.), free printables (Math, Reading, Scavenger Hunts, etc.), free videos, plus, much MORE. Almost all of the free games can be played on iPads/mobile devices .
