Tecmo Stackers
   Awesome original PS1 title!

     This is a tetris style video game where students have to make "chains" of similar colors. I like to use this one to teach about physical and chemical properties and changes.
     The color of the blocks represent physical properties and blocks binding together are physical changes because you just have 2 or 3 red or blue blocks sitting there.  The chemical properties of the blocks are the ability of the blocks to form a chain and the chemical changes occur when one gets four blocks or more and a reaction takes place.
    Plus, the kids love it!
