Desktop games are a great way to stimulate interest and motivate kids. Here you will find links to an assortment of interactive games and activities from the Internet for use in your classroom. They cover this topic and can be used in a computer lab, on an interactive whiteboard, or on individual computer systems. There are a variety of skill levels in these activities.
