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.


<p>ElaineFitzgerald.com offers a number of "Jeopardy-style" games in the PowerPoint format. Games from this site provide a learning environment for students ranging from fifth to eighth grade. Among the subjects included are fractions, geometry and Louisiana. The site offers games for download or a generalised template that allows you to create a program using your own specifications. Once downloaded, alterations can be made to provide children with different questions that award points for correct answers.
