Interactive French Revolution games are perfect for winding down a French Revolution unit in a classroom or to use for summarising information for a French Revolution test. French Revolution quiz games that put students in the teacher's seat, are especially fun when students can watch the teacher walk a virtual plank or experience a virtual fling. French Revolution art puzzles are also exciting to play, especially on a cold or rainy day.

Fling the Teacher

"Fling the Teacher" is a free online interactive game, presented at School History online. Create the character that represents the teacher by giving him any colour of hair and skin you wish. Prepare to build a trebuchet by answering French Revolution questions correctly. Each correct answer will add a section to the trebuchet. A wrong answer will send you back to the game's beginning. Click on the Einstein-looking character in the screen's lower left-hand corner to ask him for help. Beware, however, his answers are not always correct. Click on "-2" and it will remove two incorrect answers from your score.

Walk the Plank

School History presents a free interactive French Revolution game titled, "Walk the Plank." Choose the character's hair and skin colour and then click, "Start." You will answer 10 questions about the French Revolution. While you're answering the questions, your teacher is standing on the plank. If you get an answer wrong, the teacher gets to move backward away from the end of the plank. If you get an answer correct, you get to roll the dice to move him forward on the plank.


Fupa Online offers "Guillotine," a free interactive hangman game. Click on "French Revolution" to begin. Simply type in a letter to begin guessing the puzzle. Wrong letter guesses will earn a cheer from the crowd and will show up on the "Wrong Guesses" board. If you guess the puzzle, the crowd will cry sadly as your man walks away free. Too many wrong guesses cause the cheers to get louder right before the guillotine falls. Remember, all words are related to the French Revolution.

Jigsaw Puzzles

French Revolution online interactive jigsaw and slide puzzles are offered for free at neoK12 online. Click on pictures, such as "The Storming of the Bastille" and "French Army Enters Rome, 1798" to see them transform into a jigsaw puzzle. "The Fall of the Monarchy" and "Return from Varennes to Paris" two other pictures that can be chosen to be played in jigsaw or slide puzzle mode. Once the jigsaw puzzle has been activated, simply drag and drop the pieces to click them into place.
