I'm sorry, I couldn't resist that title. Phun is a "2D physics sandbox" where your students can have fun while learning.
The creators of Phun describe the program like this:
Great for kids
Phun is a fantastic toy for children, where they can learn and
appreciate physics, science and simulations in an open ended gameplay
with rich creative and artistic freedom, including colorful freehand
Tina, a FreelyEducate.com reader, sent in the link to Phun. She said she appreciates why the creators are keeping Phun free: "We want to keep Phun freely available for non-commercial use, since
we think and hope that Phun can make a difference in promoting science
and art to the masses, in particular children and young people, through
a constructionists learning paradigm."

Kim and Antonia ~ Thanks so much for commenting and stopping by. Let us know how the kids like it!
Wow, I can’t believe I hadn’t heard of that program before. I am getting ready to download it right now! Super find…
The joke is on me ! I am going to have to invest some time in learning how to use this program. It is NOT “intuitively obvious”. So I’m waiting until I have enough computer time without encroaching on my college boy’s needs for the Internet. (. . . Baci to FMSLogo, which is much easier !)
