Discovery Channel is at it again, bringing fun and education together for the masses. I recently got lost in the interactive games they host on their website, and I’m going to try to limit myself to telling you about 5 of the best.
These interactive games cover typical Discovery Channel genres. They have interactive games about Egypt, China, Dinosaurs, and the Earth, as well as games about ships like the Bismarck and the Titanic. Discovery Channel also has an interactive game called Tour a Lion. It may be impossible to pick through the interactive games to pick one favorite.
However, I’m narrowing it down to 5 interactive games:
