Curriculum integration is one of the main factors in the teachers’ decision-making process when deciding to use games in formal educational contexts. Based on this observation, we aim to provide primary education teachers with a selection of (serious) games in each of the main areas of the primary education curriculum in Quebec. The taxonomy of the games selected includes Serious Games (SG), designed for educational purposes from the start, but also repurposed games, which, despite not having being intentionally designed for educational purposes, could be diverted for meeting the curriculum objectives of primary education.
