Knowledge Mouse

September 7, 2012 -- Submitted by Bryan Lee, a reader from Burlingame, CA, who is affiliated with the site.

Knowledge Mouse is a brand new site that claims to try to “make learning fun”. The site features various activities including a word search puzzle creator, a flash card maker, a arithmetic quiz generator, and a quiz sheet maker. With the word-based tools, you can enter your own words, or choose from existing lists. The word search puzzle maker also features a “quiz-style” mode, where instead of just listing the words that are in the puzzle, you can instead give questions or hints.

These are all “printable” activities, as there are currently no live games on the site. The printables are helpful for teachers and parents to teach kids in a more fun and entertaining way. The above activities are all free, and there are no ads on the site.
