Lakeshore Learning Giveaway & Coupon!

One of the perks of blogging is getting to try out new products and then sharing them with you! I have a few really amazing things to share with you right now and instead of stretching them out over the next few weeks, I've decided to share them with you over the next few days in a fun little event I'm calling:
I only agree to review products if the company agrees to a giveaway as well. I love knowing that some cool products are getting into your classrooms! Among those goodies this week are some Brag Tags, math games and manipulatives, a MeCorder mini video recorder,  a Cricut-Mini and that's not even all!

So, let's get rolling with this fun game I am loving from Lakeshore! I have a morning center called Globetrotters, which includes all kinds of geography based activities. I knew this game was going to be a perfect addition to the center. I had the box on my back table for a few days before I played it with the first small group and they were so curious about it! My kids really seem to have an interest in geography, but the cute, colorful box really drew their attention. I like the compact size. I don't have a ton of storage space and I hate games that have a thousand little pieces or come in a box that is so much bigger than it needs to be. You can see this game is a bit smaller than a new pencil.


The game is for ages 8+. I found that some of the American history based questions on the cards were a little tough for my kids right now, who are actually a little younger than the suggested age.  However, we will be learning most of that content by the end of the year. The great thing is that the first two questions on the card are map based questions and the game comes with a laminated map for the kids to use while playing the game. So, we modified the directions a little bit. The kids just choose from  question 1 or 2 to answer, instead of questions 1-5. Perfect!


For each correctly answered question, the kids get to take a points token from the drawstring bag. The first student to reach 100 points worth of tokens is the winner! Nice way to sneak in some math, too.

My kids really enjoyed the game and I'm sure yours will too. Enter to win one below.

Lakeshore had also generously offered a 25% discount on any one non-sale item. Just click {HERE} for the code. Good Luck and be sure to check back for tomorrows giveaway!

  4. I would love to see one or more of Lakeshore's theme kits reviewed on your blog. I always go to them when I'm on the site, but I'm wondering how practical and useful they actually are in the classroom.

  13. I love "learning" games for my classroom and my kids love them for indoor recess as well as lessons. I'd love to see what the money games are like. I find coins are always a struggle and games like Lakeshore's Money Folder Game Library might really help students get more practice at a variety of opportunities to use money.
