Play: PHIT the Pieces in the Right Placelearning rx September 16 graphic PHIT

Play PHIT! It's like Tetris, but you move each piece to fit in exactly the right place. All pieces need to fit perfectly within the yellow boundary. Sometimes this game is easy. Other times, it makes your brain tired. Why? Because playing this game successfully requires a host of cognitive skills including: Sustained Attention, Logic and Reasoning, Planning, Processing Speed, and Visual Manipulation! It's also a good test of patience.

 

LearningRx likes games that boost your brain! Try it yourself or challenge your son or daughter to play!
