Game List by Subject

ELA

Civilization V( Map Builder)

Make a map of the region described in a book. Write a short story and build a map of your story’s setting.



Minecraft

Same map building capabilities as Civ V but with more control and versatility. Can build houses, farms, cities, anything really.



Limbo

Great for tone. Can be used as a standalone game or with a brighter game for comparison. Super Mario Galaxy and Little Big Planet are a couple of good games to use for comparison.



Portal 2

Influence of setting on characters. Lesson plan available at www.teachwithportals.com

ELA is perfect for a game-based curriculum. Any lesson where students were asked to read a book can be altered to use a story based video game instead. Everybody's Gone to the Rapture, Bioshock, The Last of Us, and most games by Bioware are good examples games with solid stories.

MATH

Minecraft

Perimiter, Volume, Area, using simple blocks. The sky is the limit with this software package and there is a great deal of support and premade content available for free online.



The Math Mage

Mobile App - Use addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division to cast spells which defeat monsters and save your village.



Wuzzit Trouble

Mobile App - Build children's number sense, problem solving and creative and critical thinking skills.



Kerbal Space Program

Lots of calculations introduced with harsh learning curve. Great for Pre-cal or Calculus. I suggest playing first and seeing what you can use from it.



Portal 2

Calculations, geometry, graphing, etc. Ready to use lesson plans are available at www.teachwithportals.com



SCIENCE

Civilization V (Map Builder)

Build maps

Virtual tours: Pyramids of Giza, Temple of Artemis, Laxmi Vilas Palace, and Kyoto’s Nijo Castle to name a few. These are ALREADY built. Don’t worry about having to try to build these yourself (people most likely put hundreds of hours into making these).
