# Online Geometry Games for Kids

Learning geometry can be fun when kids get to play games. Luckily, plenty of free online interactive games are available to help your child review geometry concepts, whether he or she is in elementary or high school. Check out these three websites for entertaining and educational geometry activities.

## Geometry Games at Math-Play.com

Here you'll find an extensive collection of free online math games, searchable by topic or grade level. Games are geared towards middle school and junior high school students. Games vary with some using simple images of shapes and others employing flash graphics to engage kids. No matter what your child's tolerance is for visual or auditory sound while attempting math problems, there's likely at least one game that will suit him or her.

## Cool Math's Geometry Games

These interactive math games, reminiscent of early Nintendo video games, deal mainly with shapes and puzzles. The geometry concepts are introductory and may help familiarize your elementary school child with geometry. Themes include primates, frogs and outer space, and directions are given in clear, basic terms. Games require an updated version of Flash player in order to work.

## 'Interactivate' Math Games from Shodor.org

If your son or daughter has already mastered the first few geometry lessons about identifying shapes and measuring angles, he or she might enjoy these geometry games from the Shodor Education Foundation. Games are appropriate for high school kids.

Games deal with more complex areas of geometry, such as evaluating cross-sections of shapes on a graph and manipulating shapes to find certain angles or coordinates. Some of the topics covered include graph recursion, cones, prisms and quadrilateral figures.

One game uses a map of North Carolina to help kids practice measuring angles and distances between cities. Another game reviews the geometric properties of fractals using the graphic image of a moving snowflake. Most of the games don't contain flashing lights, extremely bright colors or loud noises, so they're appropriate for kids who may become easily distracted by some of the more intense games.
