Engage students with fun, interactive activities

Teachers and students explore one of three worlds, based on age-range and ability.

The Big Bus 2.0 offers 44 topic-based modules. Modules cover subjects such as habitats, phonics and data collection. Nearly all of these contain several very different games. This gives you hundreds of different educational games with thousands of different levels of difficulty! Each contains a variety of standards-based activities to challenge all skill levels.

Enchanted World
PreK students learn keyboarding, counting and letter recognition and develop problem solving skills and spatial awareness.

Adventurers' World
K-grade 2 students test math skills, practice sight words and explore reference books to develop information gathering skills.

Explorers' World
Students grades 3 to 5 utilize a problem-solving, interactive environment to learn STEM skills, including LOGO and forces and motion, as well as develop writing skills within content areas.

Teacher Tools allow The Big Bus 2.0 activities to be customized to match student skill level and physical need. Teacher notes, lesson ideas and worksheets accompany many activities and allow educators greater flexibility for classroom use.
