Educaplay.com is a website with numerous games for education. The variety of assignments and exercises makes this tool useful for any subject. From pointing things out on a map to writing down a dictated word, and from crossword puzzles to practising a dialogue; this tool has got it all.
Educaplay is very easy to use, but the simplicity of the creation-stage may require some figuring out. The tools you create are very easy to embed (in a website or e-mail), but you can also choose to share the link with your students. Of course you can also choose to project the game and use it as part of your instruction.
Educaplay is free, but in exchange for that it displays advertisements (similar to YouTube). The tool will keep track of your students' score and place them on a scoreboard. This causes the students to become competitive and try their best. The games can be accustomed in any way you like and will prove to really enhance your lessons!
