Kubbu: Make Education Games

I recently came across the site Kubbu. This is a site where teachers can make games and online activities for students. The activities can be made available to individual students or groups of students and the teacher can view and analyse results.

Kubbu is free for teachers although is limited to using with 30 students and 15 activities at a time. If you wish to use Kubbu with a larger group of students or create more than 15 activities you can purchase a year’s membership.

The types of activities you can create on Kubbu include matching, sorting, crosswords and a range of quizzes. Activities are stored for 30 days and you can print paper copies of the online activities.

This is an example of an online synonym matching activity.

It may seem time consuming to create new activities for students but there are also shared activities available that others have made. I couldn’t find many activities that would be useful for my students in the shared section although hopefully these activities will grow as Kubbu becomes more well known by teachers.

Kubbu could be used with students of all age groups and could be a handy tool for practice, revision and assessment both at school or as homework.

  1. This is a great site for those times where you just can’t find a fun game for the content you want students to practice.

  2. Wow, this is a great find. This is so neat. My mind is racing with all of the different ways to I could use this in class. Thanks for reviewing this tool and I can’t wait to get started. Thanks for sharing.

  3. Hi Kelly and Nicholas, I agree that we sometimes need tools like this when we can’t find something online that really meets our kid’s needs. Let me know if you use it as I’d love to see how it goes!
