Fun Learning Games For Kids 2-10 on Ubuntu

Filed under
Software

Teachers are always on the lookout for educational software that can actually hold a child’s attention. Instead of cutting the kids loose on the Xbox, why not give GCompris a try?

It’s an educational software suite, with the full version available for Linux-based operating systems like Ubuntu at no cost. It’s also available for Windows 2000 and above, but the free Windows version comes with a limited number of activities (you can buy the full version for 20€). Comprised of tons of simple and engaging learning games, GCompris is designed to establish and reinforce basic skills like counting, word recognition, and more.

To give you a basic feel for the application, here’s the reading activities category screen. There’s quite a few games to choose from, each designed to address a specific aspect of reading skills development. To start a game, you simply click on an icon.
