As summer begins to wind down, our attention is slowly shifting to everything back to school. If you’re like me, your days are spent gathering all the school essentials and, if you’re a teacher, maybe even planning out your lessons for the year. If you’re a third – eighth grade teacher, I have something exciting to share with you. Meet Legends of Learning, a curriculum-aligned science game website for elementary and middle school students. Best of all? It’s FREE for teachers and students. Legends of Learning offers more than 1,200 fun science classroom games for elementary and middle school teachers to use with their students.
The science games and simulations for grades 3-8 cover over 144 learning objectives. That means elementary and middle school teachers can find a science game that meets standards for every lesson they have planned for the year.
Legends of Learning games increase engagement amongst students, lesson comprehension, and test performance, making them a win-win program for teachers and students alike.
Every learning objective has a variety of games that you can choose from and the time that is needed to play the game. Making it easy to incorporate into your day’s schedule.
I gave the program a try with my own son before our school year starts back up and he really enjoyed it. He finds ready notes pretty boring but when he can add some fun games into his routine, that actually support what he’s learning, I found he had a better recollection of the things he learned than when he just reads his notes.
I let him pick his first unit of study and since he’s really into the solar system and planets right now, he chose The Milky Way
Galaxy and Other Galaxies. The games kept his attention and when I quizzed him on things he learned, I felt like he retained more information than when he just read information from a book or worksheet. Plus the fact that he actually asked to do his work everyday spoke volumes about the program.
I can’t wait to incorporate more of this program into our studies this year.

A playlist is a list of games you’d like your students to play as they learn the certain subjects or just to reinforce the lessons you previously covered. Students can easily participate right in the classroom or at home. It only takes minutes to set up and there’s even an assessment tool that allows you to monitor each students progress as you go along.
