Yes, the globe-hopping recluse from your childhood has still not been found, and now it's up to your kids to track her down. The "Carmen Sandiego" games were one of the most popular and enjoyable educational series in the '80s, and they still are today. After all, who doesn't love playing detective? Designed for elementary and middle schoolers, these games allow kids to solve a mystery or track Sandiego or another villain across the globe. The series has long served as a teaching tool for geography, history, reading comprehension and problem solving, and the newest additions focus on building math skills. For instance, kids may be required to place numbered columns in order from smallest to largest or solve a series of equations within a short time limit to advance to the next level. Children who enjoy these games might also like the companion books, TV shows and board games based on this series.
