These days, we spend most of our days on computers or our phones, but back when we were kids it was like this special treat we only got ever once and a while. The best class was always computer class because you would get to play the best games around!
Schools always had the best games! A few lucky kids were able to get home computers as well, but a lot of us had to wait until it was time for the best class around. Obviously all the games needed some kind of educational component, but they did a great job disguising it in fun games that we all loved.
How many of these educational games do you remember?
1. Math Blaster
The most fun way to learn basic math! I mean, look how cute that little character is?
2. Storybook Weaver
Storytelling is one of the best ways to get that imagination up and running when you're a kid and this was the coolest way to do it!
3. All The Right Type
Some teachers we super strict on sticking to that home line on the keyboard. I remember we had one teacher would would put a piece of paper over your fingers so you couldn't look at the keys while you typed!
4. Where In The World Is Carmen Sandiego
Carmen Sandiego was one of the best shows around, so good it's getting a reboot! The game that accompanied it helped us all learn a lot more about geography than we realized while we traveled across the globe trying to track down Carmen.
5. Number Munchers
Math is always more enjoyable when it's got tiny creatures involved!
6. Magic School Bus Games
The Magic School Bus was easily one of the best shows we could watch as kids. Ms. Frizzle was one of the best teachers, the kids were all wonderful and unique in their own way, and we learned so much! It was great when we got to play in that world ourselves! I remember this game so vividly!
7. Reader Rabbit
It was always great to head to "Wordville" for the day. Learning how to read was pretty great, especially when you get play fun mini games to do it!
