The online social studies games and activities make learning social studies vocabulary a lot of fun. Through these interactive social studies vocabulary games, your students learn context and meaning, as well as the correct spelling of their social studies words. VocabularySpellingCity helps your students learn more readily, and hopes to make teaching social studies vocabulary a much easier and more productive task for you.

Vocabulary comprehension can be the difference between pass and fail on a test. Perhaps more importantly, it can be the difference between building interest and feeling defeated. Naturally, teachers and parents alike want their students to be interested and motivated in order to ensure success. VocabularySpellingCity's interactive games and fun learning activities keep students engaged while building their vocabulary, which is a key part of understanding the concepts and events to which the vocabulary refers. When 5th grade students know the specific meanings of words, they can relate them to a particular context and thereby grasp the broader lesson at hand.
