Super Star Games
As a 2nd year member of the TOS Homeschool Crew, I have been given the wonderful opportunity to review many homeschool products over the next several months. The only compensation that I receive for my review is the free product. I feel truly blessed to be participating in this review group and I'm looking forward to trying out more products and giving you my honest opinion.
A couple of days ago I told you about the Super Star Speech books, but we also had the opportunity to review Super Star Games.
Now if you have been hanging around my blog for awhile then you probably know that we are File Folder Game junkies around here. They are such an easy and inexpensive way to make learning fun.
Super Star Games offer a variety of games that can be used with your elementary or middle school aged children. I think it's worth it to list the description of each game below so that you know what they have to offer.
Silly Snail: Review parts of speech (common noun, proper noun, pronoun, verb, adjective, and adverb) with Silly Snail: Parts of Speech Game. 3rd to 6th grades.
Planets, Moon and Stars is a game for children in third grade and up. Players answer trivia questions about space while trying to be the first to collect all the planets in the solar system.
Road to Revolution: Reinforce your study of the American Revolutionary War with the Road to Revolution board game. Includes 48 multiple choice questions cards and game board. Players try to be first to the finish line while answering questions about famous people, events, and causes of the Revolutionary war. Designed for grades 3-8.
Explorers of the World: Learn about 24 world explorers and their contributions to American and world history. The 72 game cards can be used to play two different games-- a matching game and a time line game. Have fun while reinforcing your history and geography studies! Explorers of the World is appropriate for 3rd to 8th grades.
The Inventors Game will teach your child about 24 famous inventors. Instructions are included for two different games, with variations for difficulty. Children have fun matching inventors to their inventions or playing a timeline game using the dates of different inventions.
The object of Covering the Continents is to "settle" more continents than any other player. Covering the Continents includes a game board/ map and game cards that ask questions about each of the seven continents. Players try to be the first to answer three questions about a continent to "settle" it. Fun for ages 6 to 10.
Colony Quest is a game that will teach children about the thirteen American Colonies and map skills. Children will answer questions about the colonies while trying to "settle" more colonies than the other players. A fun way to reinforce your American History curriculum! Ideal for 3rd through 5th graders.
Players of the Exploring Egypt Game will race to be first to the top of the pyramid by answering the most questions about ancient Egypt.

Play The Insect Game to learn all about insects or to reinforce your current study of insects. Players answer questions to earn insect parts, attempting to be the first player to build a complete insect. This game is designed for 2nd to 6th grades.
All About Animals is an animal classification game for grades K-5. Players use picture cards or clue cards to categorize animals into the five major groups.
These games are the perfect supplement to your studies to help reinforce your student's learning. The games have colorful, but simple illustrations which is helpful for printing and each game is SO affordable at only $3.50! Plus they're available for INSTANT download at Currclick. I've got nothing bad to say about this one!
