Stingray Chaser

Free stingrays and remove harmful algae from the ocean. After removing enough debris from the stingrays, you will be asked to select the correct answer to continue.


Vocabulary Pinball Click on the red flipper buttons to keep the ball in play. Try to hit all of the letters with the ball to spell a word. Next, choose the correct definition for the word. A correct answer gives a free ball and an incorrect takes a ball away. Hold down and release the green button to launch the ball! Try all of the lists or register to make your own!

  • fault -- a break in the earth's crust where rocks can slide past each other
  • mantle -- a very thick layer of Earth underneath Earth's thin crust
  • rift -- deep valley
  • weathering -- process of being broken down into smaller pieces
  • crust -- thin outer skin of the Earth
  • erosion -- the removal and transportation of weathered material
  • glacier -- immense ice sheets
  • plate tectonics -- theory that the lithosphere is divided into plates that are always moving
  • volcano -- mountains that form molten rock
  • core -- beneath the mantle is the last major layer of Earth
  • epicenter -- the point on Earth's surface directly above the focus
  • focus -- the point inside Earth where an earthquake begins
  • mid-ocean ridge -- a chain of mountains that runs through the world's oceans
  • seafloor spread -- plates seperate and hot rock moves upward
  • earthquake -- the snap and slide of rocks as energy is released in Earth's crust

Light Energy

  • transparent -- matter through which light can pass without being scattered
  • prism -- a specially shaped transparent object used to seperate light
  • real image -- lenses are used to form these/can be focused on a movie screen
  • amplitude -- the height of the wave/ the energy of the wave/the wave's strength
  • ultraviolet -- radiant energy with frequencies beyond that of the waves of visible violet light
  • absorbed -- when waves are taken into the matter
  • opaque -- matter through which light cannot pass
  • wavelength -- is the distance from the crest of one wave to the crest of the next
  • infrared -- radiant energy with frequencies lower than that of visable red light
  • transmitted -- when light waves pass through matter
  • translucent -- matter that scatters light when it passes through it
  • virtual image -- image appears to be behind a mirror
  • vacuum -- is any space that contains little or no matter
  • frequency -- the number of waves produced each second
  • reflected -- light waves bounce off the surface of the matter

Play Kids Games provides free online kids games that are both fun and educational. Aimed at ages pre-K through middle school, Play Kids Games offers kids a safe environment to discover their abilities and learn new skills with interactive and fun computer games. Our games build skills in math, logic, memory, vocabulary, alphabet, spelling, geography, computer skills, color identification, shape identification and other various problem solving. Our commitment to parents, teachers, and kids, is to connect learning and skill building with a sense of challenge, fun, and self esteem. From the fun of "Alphabet Whack-a-Mole" to the skill building "Math Fact Practice", our hope is that will be a part of our future generation's ongoing experience and development.

Let us know what you think, and go ahead, whack a mole!
