What Types of Activities Does FunBrain Have for Kids?

FunBrain offers children in preschool through eighth grade the opportunity to play free educational games on its website. The games are grouped into four categories: math, reading, fun and playground.

As of 2015, FunBrain offers more than 100 games, books and comics for children to develop their math, reading and literacy skills. The company invites parents to utilize its resources at home with their children and teachers and librarians to encourage their students to explore the site in the classroom.

Children can search for games by category or grade level. Math games teach students concepts such as addition, subtraction, multiplication, division and fractions. Children can explore the topics through games such as "Bunny Count," "Math Baseball" and "Tic Tac Toe Squares."

Students can develop and build upon their language and literacy skills through FunBrain's reading resources. Books, including the best-seller "Diary of a Wimpy Kid," and comics are available, as are games that focus on spelling and grammar.

The website also has a "Fun" category that includes favorite games from the reading and math pages plus a few additional games that do not focus on any particular skill. These include "Penguin Drop," "Mighty Guy" and "Extreme Air."

The "Playground" section is designed for preschoolers and their parents. Its purpose is to introduce young children to the computer and Internet through fun games.
