We were delighted to hear that Outset Media is in the midst of redesigning the Professor Noggin's card games. They have already finished 23 titles and sent them to us for review. We have really enjoyed comparing the original look to the new look.
I love those beautifully charming watercolor-esque drawings on the original Professor Noggin card game sets, but the realistic photos on the newly designed sets are AMAZING! They really capture the core essence of every card with these new breathtaking life-like photos.
I totally love how Professor Noggin has a new look and she dresses for the occasion on each of the newly redesigned card games. I also love how each card has so much helpful detail, like the game number and what the card is about. I also love the new trivia question design. It's all so neat, clean, crisp, and beautiful. I am loving how the cards have that file folder tab look on them and how the boxes match! It was such a great idea to make sure the cards were easily identifiable to which card set box they belong to. This is so helpful for families that like to use several Professor Noggin sets together. There is no question which card goes with which set now that they are so very well labeled!
Outset media is has also confirmed that they are bringing back two of their retired Professor Noggin titles. They are currently working on redesigning Extraordinary Women and Famous Inventions, which will be retitled to Inventions and Discoveries! We can't wait to play them!
Anyone and everyone can play Professor Noggin's card games. They work in almost any setting!
HomeschoolersMy kids and I truly enjoy incorporating Professor Noggin's card games into our homeschool day, every day! The great thing about Professor Noggin's card games is they are so versatile. You can use them to start your Homeschool day, break up the day with a nice transition into the next lesson, or even to end your Homeschool day. They are also the perfect companion to most any unit study or book that you are reading aloud. Professor Noggin's card games are also great for in the car! The kids can read the questions and everyone can answer! They are also perfect for Homeschool groups and co-ops.
EducatorsProfessor Noggin's card game sets are also great for Homeschool groups and Homeschool co-ops. Professor Noggin's card games are also excellent for classrooms and learning programs. Kids love trivia, and these sets are not only super fun, but they are also super educational. You could easily work them into your lesson plans! They are also perfect to get your students started at the beginning of the day, right after lunch or recess, before or after tests, or to transition into the next part of your school day!
Professor Noggin's card games are also great for kids to play together in small or large groups! They can play for points and keep score, or just read and answer the trivia questions for fun! Professor Noggin's card games are great to keep kids busy in almost any setting. They are perfect for Summer time, road trips, plane trips, and rainy days too!
I am also really enjoying the Learning with Professor Noggin Facebook group. I created it a few months ago and it already has well over 100 members. It is open to Parents, Homeschoolers, and Educators.
