Fun Activites on Teaching and Learning Resources

Seasonal fun

  • Seasonal activities by Diane Hawkins - web quests, puzzles, crosswords and wordsearches just for fun.



  • Mind Reader
    Pick a number between 1 and 63 and the computer will tell you the number you are thinking of.

  • Harry Potter Hangman
    How well do you know the Harry Potter books? Guess the word before you lose your life!

Logic and Memory Puzzles

  • Concentration Game
    Uncover all the blocks by successfully matching the image pairs. A great way to improve both concentration and memory!

  • Picture Memory
    A very challenging memory game. Opens in a new window.

  • Connect 4
    This is a Javascript version of 2 player Connect 4. Players take turns dropping pieces into the columns of the board. The computer keeps score! Opens in a new window.

  • The Towers of Hanoi
    See how you do in this wonderful game of skill and logic. Try to move all the disks onto another pole. Thing is, you can only move one disk at a time and you must follow size order (a bigger disk can't go on a smaller disk). Good luck!

  • Join the Dots
    Join the dots to make more boxes than the computer to win this interactive Javascript game. Opens in a new window.

  • AllLights
    You need to use all your logic skills to solve this puzzle! The objective of the game is to turn all 25 "lights" on. Clicking a square will toggle (turn) its light on and off - but watch out! Turning a light on will turn off all the lights in the squares next to that square and vice versa!

  • Solitaire
    Remove as many marbles as possible from the board. The only legal moves are horizontal or vertical jumps of one marble over another to an empty hole on the other side. The marble that is jumped is removed from the board. To move, just drag a marble in some legal direction.

  • Trouble Underground!
    A worm, a mole, a maze. Working together they can move the obstacles, and make their way to the next level! Use your logic skills by yourself or with a partner to solve this fiendishly difficult maze! Takes a while to load, but worth it!
