Designed for grades 3-5, the CYBERCHASE Lucky Star game show challenges kids to compete for top scores while building important math skills. This easy-to-install application engages students using the hugely popular characters from CYBERCHASE and offers the following features:
  • Motivational & Replayable Learning: 150 fun questions combine a mix of age-appropriate math and problem-solving to help students strengthen their skills in algebraic thinking, number and operations, geometry, measurement, and more.
  • Think Pad: Students can represent their thinking as they solve problems on the Think Pad, a blank dropdown area that lets them use the SMART Board interactive whiteboard's pens to write directly into the game.
  • Math Manipulatives: Lucky Star takes advantage of the SMART Board's touch screen interactivity by encouraging kids to manipulate objects on screen with their hands.
  • Make Your Own Game Show: Drawing from a gallery of kids' favorite CYBERCHASE characters and props, you can make your own questions tailored to specific curricular needs.
