Classtools.net houses a variety of interactive games for your classroom. This resource is FREE. The flash templates are customizable and can be embedded into blogs, wikis and websites. There is no signup, no passwords, no charges... and it is a lot of fun.My students enjoy the random name picker (thanks TonyVincent.info). After you customize the random name picker, it becomes an instant student-engagement generator as well. The random name picker is called a fruit machine, but resembles a slot machine. It can also be viewed as a typewriter, if you wish.
There are a variety of other tools on this site also. You can explore your options by clicking on the Select a Template pull down menu towards the upper right side of the page.
