Grammaropolis - Fun Grammar Games & Videos

Grammaropolis is website designed to help elementary school students learn the parts of speech. Grammaropolis features cartoon characters that represent nouns, verbs, adjectives, and other parts of speech. Students can click on any of the characters to read that character's story. After going through the character stories students can watch videos about the parts of speech and play games about the parts of speech.

Here is one of the videos available on Grammaropolis.

Thanks to Kelly Tenkely for this neat resource. If you're an elementary school teacher, I highly recommend subscribing to Kelly's blog iLearn Technology.

Applications for Education
The games on Grammaropolis could provide a fun way for students to review their knowledge of the parts of speech. While I don't think it was intentionally designed for use on an interactive whiteboard, I do think that Word Sort on Grammaropolis could be a good IWB activity.
