My personal favourites are the Fantastic Contraption http://fantasticcontraption.com/,
Phun http://www.phunland.com/wiki/Home,
Crayon Physicshttp://www.crayonphysics.com/, and
Launch ball http://www.sciencemuseum.org.uk/launchpad/launchball/.

I am sure that teachers have experience using particular game and collecting that together would be very very useful.

You might want to look at
