More Poisson Rouge

After further exploring, I have realised Poisson Rouge offers great potential for learning vocabulary and different languages.


If you scroll over the castles in the bottom right hand corner, you will notice one with a Greek Flag, one with an English flag, one with a French Flag and one with a Chinese Flag.  These flags represent the language used in each game.  When you click on one of the castles another castle appears. 


You can then scroll over areas of the castle to learn categories of words such as:
Toys,
Kitchen,
Body,
Animals,
Workshop,
Bathroom,
Numbers,
Clothes,
Music,
Transport.



You can also click on the seasons on the black board and click on the insects flying around.

This is the same for each castle only in the different languages.

This is a great activity for students to explore.  You could even set a type of scavenger hunt and see if the students can find the items in the game.

This is one of my favorite sites to use with kindergarten. Because there are no directions to follow they can explore and navigate around and practice mouse skills with no worry. the activities are almost endless!

It just keeps getting better! My students are usually the ones to find all of the caveats of games. I feel like every year I learn something new from the kiddos!
