If you're seeking a way to keep children entertained and help them learn at the same time, consider a PowerPoint game. In today's computerised society, parents and teachers struggle to create engaging projects that will help kids learn. PowerPoint, a presentation software program offered by Microsoft as part of its Office Suite, is a natural choice for educational games because of the animation and interactive files it can create. Many web sites offer pre-formatted PowerPoint games for download to home computers. These programs teach math, science and communication skills and also have history, music and art components.
