The Best Educational Wii Games

Updated on June 27, 2012

The Wii was the first video games platform to "break the mold" of traditional video games because of how active playing it entails being. Before the Wii the only exercise you got playing a video game was moving your thumb, but Wii Sports, Wii Fit and countless other games require exercise and being active. The Wii also has many games that can be educational but also fun,

  1. Big Brain Academy: Wii Degree

The Big Brain Academy: Wii Degree is a great game to play alone or with others. This game has multiple multi-player modes and can accommodate up to eight players so it is great for family game nights or parties.

This game is acceptable for all ages however younger children may not get the tasks involved or enjoy the game as much as older children or adults.

The game breaks tasks into five categories and tests you in tasks of each before giving you your brain weight, you can also duel another player in split screen mode and much much more.

This game is a great educational video game that can help you keep your mind sharp and brain active while having fun from the comfort of your own home.

Reader Rabbit is available for young children of all ages with editions from preschool to 2nd grade. This series is available on both Wii and PC. It includes many mini games that incorporate art, vocab and math lessons that make learning fun and simply seem like a game. Which version your child needs depends on their personal reading level but their grade is a good baseline for choosing which level to get if they are on grade level in reading.
