30+ Educational Games for Middle & High School



Affiliate links may have been used in this post. To read our full disclaimer, click here.

My oldest is now in middle school – 6th grade to be exact. He loves math. He dislikes spelling and grammar. He also loves games. His favorite are strategy games that require math, logic and reasoning. And even though he doesn’t really like spelling, we like to play games with him to help reinforce words he knows and new ones he’s learned; which makes learning spelling not so bad.

Even Middle and High Schoolers love to play games, so why not make them Educational too! Check out some of our favorite games that can reinforce math, spelling, logic, music and more! :: www.homeschoolgiveaways.com

My family is a big game playing family. In fact, we plan to have a sleep-over at my brother’s house over Christmas just so we can hang out and play games together. Our parents did it when we were young and now its time to carry on the tradition. I cannot wait. Many of the games we play are not only great for middle school age, but also high school and beyond.

Reverse Charades – In this fun twist on charades game, players work together as a team to guess the clue being acted by one player.

Pandemic – Four diseases have broken out in the world and it is up to a team of specialists in various fields to find cures for these diseases before mankind is wiped out. Players must work together playing to their characters’ strengths and planning their strategy of eradication before the diseases overwhelm the world with ever-increasing outbreaks.

The Resistance – The Resistance is a very intense social deduction game for 5-10 players. While it shares similiarities with games like Werewolf, Mafia and even Battlestar Galactica it has many very unique features such as a quick 30 minute play time, no moderator required and no player elimination.

LIFE – Experiencing life’s key moments and making independent choices is even more fun with careers picked by kids, for kids. What choices will you make? Will you choose the longer college path toward a high-paying job or choose a trade right away to get paid sooner? Will you express your creativity as an inventor or dancer, or become a veterinarian to help animals? Whatever you choose, you never know what ups and downs you’ll encounter along the way.
