Each square on the board has a different STEM-based activity linked. For example, the spot labeled Play the Button Guessing Game links to an online pattern game through the teacher resource website, Annenberg Lerner.
The gameboard site also contains tips on how best to use the online gaming sessions with your child, and real-life STEM activities, as well as screen-time guildelines for children.
I did notice some of the links are dead, but other games could be easily found on the linked site with a few clicks. And the library-related game elements link to Idaho libraries, but you can find the link to our online catalog here.
It is sometimes difficult to find safe online gaming options, especially educational ones. This gameboard helps to take a lot of the hunting out of finding a good site, and it makes playing the games and doing the activities a game itself!
Overall, a really great way to share computer time with your little one!
