Aunty Ruth's Apples - Simple Math Skills Game
Pick four types of apples from Aunty Ruth's orchard, for sale at the store by the road. Watch out for bad ones! Math skills are used as the crew gets paid for the work done. Lovely way to help young children practice adding and multiplying.
Flowers Are Forever
Four math games. Players are partners, forming as many good flower gardens as they can, using their trowels to dig up the Weeds that threaten them. This is one of the best cooperative games for math teaching we can imagine! Suzanne, a former math and science teacher and owner of CooperativeGames.com gives this two thumbs up as an anti-anxiety math game! Cooperation is always better for anxious kids than competition :D
Max the Cat
Players become little creatures who need to evade Max the cat, a natural hunter. Teamwork saves the day! This game is a beloved personal favorite of Suzanne--owner and operator of this site, mom, teacher, and cooperative game aficionado!
Old Spider and the Fly
The bugs are back in our cabin, and Old Spider has put his web for them. We can help him catch them. Spiders are pretty cool--not really scary!
Forbidden Island is another exciting cooperative card game designed by Matt Leacock, who designed the best seller Pandemic. Players take the role of fearless adventurers who search a mysterious island for hidden treasure as the island sinks around them. Players win together if they find all the hidden treasures and make it back to the helicopter to fly away. They lose everything if they cannot! For 2-4 players ages 10 and up.
