Hangman is a game we likely all played at least once or two billion times when we were kids. It’s a simple game to play as well, making it perfect for kids. The goal of the game is to guess what a person has chosen as a word or phrase, a lot like Wheel of Fortune without the “Wheel” part. The way you win is by guessing a letter in the word or phrase. Every time you are wrong, the little hangman gets a body part added. You lose if the hangman becomes fully developed.
In this version of Hangman though, we’re going to allow you to offer hints or have your child answer questions. If you choose the question lane, you’ll want to make them science-driven where the letter you use will be in the answer. Since that can be complicated, the hint works too. You’d just choose a science word or phrase, and they’d guess the letters connected to it just as they would in the normal game. This will allow you to tell them about important science terms.
