Reviewer Comments:

This resource contains a variety of SWF games, created using the StudyMate tool, covering the approximately 11 keywords related to sources of light used in the UK-based, KS3 Energy Transfer unit (equivalent to US middle school level). Resources include a crossword, a fill in the blank activity, flash cards, a glossary, a matching game, and pick a letter (like Hangman). Each of the games has a scoring feature, including hints and reset buttons. These resources could be a nice was to introduce or reinforce key vocabulary, although they would have to be used as part of a larger curricular unit to actually teach the concepts effectively. To view (and play with!) the full set of the 49 Energy Transfer: Light keywords, visit http://www.curriki.org/xwiki/bin/view/Coll_andyhannaford/KS3ScienceEnergyTransferLightKeywords
