Great. Love it!

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (5 ):

The mini-games in Imagine: Teacher are too easy to hold the interest of gamers over the age of 10 or so, but the game has a lot to offer the younger demographic due to extra touches that keep the game from becoming monotonous. These include weekly lesson goals that require you to achieve certain scores in a particular subject, random fun events like field trips to the zoo or movie theatre, feedback from parents, weekly staff meetings, and having to pay attention to who likes who when seating the students at the beginning of class. Imagine: Teacher is one of the best games in the Imagine series to date, and a pretty good simulation of what it's like to be a teacher.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
