Curious George

Guide To Web Features For Kids

Below are descriptions and educational objectives for every game on the CURIOUS GEORGE Web site, as well as starter ideas for extending the learning away from the computer. (For additional real-world play ideas, check out the Activities & More section of the site.)

To get the most out of time spent playing these games, check out the Web Site Summary and Usage Tips. For an overview of all the content on this Web site, check out the Site Map.

Our 16 Busy Day games, in English and Spanish, offer kids a wide range of opportunities to learn numbers and counting as they join George on a very busy day. At the park, in the tub, launching rockets, or collecting carrots, George and his friends make math fun!


George's Hearts and Crafts

George is making heart-decorated cards to give to his friends, and he needs your help! Carefully compare jigsaw-style heart pieces to find the matching ones. When a card's complete, see who George gives the card to! Along the way, kids will hone their shape-recognition skills, and practice distinguishing relevant details from those that are less important.

Extend the learning: When you're out and about, look for pairs of items that are ALMOST the same, then talk about how some specific details are actually different.


Pumpkin Boo!

George is finding his way through the pumpkin patch, looking for the perfect pumpkin to take to the Boo Festival. Help George collect the pumpkins while avoiding some (not-too-scary) Halloween Boos. Find bunnies hiding in leaf piles to get an extra bunny bonus!

Extend the learning: Play a simple search game. Look around you and see if you can find all the orange things. Or the round things. Make up your own set of objects to find.


Secret Agent George

In this "Five Senses" game, George — who's practicing his secret agent skills wherever he can — is headed to Mabel's Department Store to pick up some items for the Man With the Yellow Hat. But he needs to remember what they are! Help George identify items by what they look, smell, sound, taste, or feel like. Afterwards, help him make his way through the department store to pick up what he needs — secret agent style!

Extend the learning: Whenever you find yourself with a few minutes, check out whatever's around you. Can you describe it? Use your five senses — touch, smell, hearing, feel, and taste — and see what words you can come up with to describe it. (Explore items SAFELY, of course!)


Snapshot

George is building some robots, and he needs your help! Follow instructions from the Man in the Yellow Hat, who describes what kind of robots he needs. Then it's up to the player to decide what kind of robot accessories would solve the problem. Create robots that hammer, play music, brush teeth, and more!

Extend the learning: Play a fun game of Guess the Robot! One player describes a task, and the other player can describe what robot accessories would be best. (Or flip it around: One player describes what accessories a robot has, and the other player can imagine what that robot would be good at.) You can create robots for handy tasks, or for silly ones!
