File folder games can be used alongside your thematic unit studies. Incorporating a learning center game into your daily lessons is a great way to keep children actively involved and immersed into a specific subject. Studies show children who learn and adapt their knowledge across subjects retain and access that information at a much higher rate. A thematic unit study and file folder game is a helpful tool for this type of cross curricular learning.
