TRY SOMETHING NEW
Train Your Brain
Your teachers were right: Improving your reading, writing, and arithmetic can be fun. These brain-training apps and games will challenge your mind (and keep you amused).
Left and right brain unite!
Elevate, Lumosity, and Peak all offer dozens of activities to unlock critical-thinking skills, test your logic, and master your memory.
Flash cards and quizzes
For more targeted training in a particular subject, turn to Quizlet for history or science flash cards, Tinycards for language-learning activities, and Vocabulary Builder by Magoosh to learn some...aberrant new words.
Typeshift and Antitype will stretch the limits of your spelling and word-association skills. For something a little more familiar (though not necessarily easier), try New York Times Crossword.
If you prefer a little mystery alongside your puzzles, these adventures will delight and inspire. Amble through the geometric world of Monument Valley 2, the whimsical hills of Old Man’s Journey, and the perplexing island of The Witness.
