Ages 6 - 8

Join the Odd Squad team to solve unusual and hilarious assignments using problem solving and reasoning, involving important mathematical concepts.

## Games

### Blob Chase

#### Skills:

• Deductive Reasoning,
• Measurement,
• Place Value,
• Spatial Sense,
• Subtraction

#### Platforms:

• Mobile

Description
The Blobs are on the loose in Odd Squad HQ! Use your arsenal of Odd Squad Gadgets to corral those Blobs into a container. Gadgets control a mathematical operation: add-to, take-away from, halve, or double. By discovering which gadget is best suited to a particular challenge, children gain or improve upon their facility with counting, addition, subtraction, doubling, halving, visualization, and deductive reasoning.

Learning Goals
Using different mathematical operations to capture blobs.

### Catch the Centigurps

#### Skills:

• Counting,
• Measurement,
• Numbers

#### Platforms:

• Online Game ,
• Mobile ,
• Interactive Whiteboard

Description
Help the Odd Squad team capture Centigurps in this fast-paced game! These fuzzy creatures are on the move and can split into 100 identical copies! Luckily, Oscar has some special containers that hold Centigurps. Use the right combinations of containers, and you’ll catch all 100 Centigurps in no time, and earn some special rewards along the way!

Learning Goals
Counting up to 100 by 1’s, 2’s, 5’s, and 10’s

### Codebreaker

• Patterns

#### Platforms:

• Online Game ,
• Mobile ,
• Interactive Whiteboard

Description
Oscar invented the security system that keeps Odd Squad Headquarters safe from intruders. He forgot what the codes are to disarm it! Can you crack the code? Follow clues and identify repeating number patterns. Watch your step—one false move and you’ll be back to square one!

Learning Goals
Counting and cardinality: identifying and counting patterns in 1s, 2s, 5s, and 10s.

### Creature Duty

#### Skills:

• Numbers,
• Shapes,
• Sorting and Classifying

#### Platforms:

• Online Game ,
• Mobile ,
• Interactive Whiteboard

Description
Odd Squad takes care of all kinds of strange creatures, like unicorns, griffins, and...spider-cats? Keep these odd creatures happy by making sure each gets their fair-share of the right kind of food. Hone your sorting and dividing skills, and you’ll earn more astoundingly odd creatures to care for!

Learning Goals
Identifying shapes, sorting and classifying, and using the partitioning of an object, like a sandwich, to represent portions of a whole.

### Down the Tubes

#### Skills:

• Geometry,
• Measurement

#### Platforms:

• Online Game ,
• Mobile ,
• Interactive Whiteboard

Description
Odd Squad agents use a vast network of tubes to travel around, but when the tubes are out of whack, they can’t go anywhere. It’s a tube-tastrophe! Help the team by finding the right shapes and lengths to repair tube pieces.

Learning Goals
Estimating and measuring lengths, using non-standard measurement, and counting.

#### Skills:

• Geometry,
• Shapes,
• Spatial Sense

#### Platforms:

• Online Game

Description
Odd Squad nemesis Odd Todd has unleashed a destructive force…the Pie-nado: a tornado made of pies! Fight to keep Pie-nado under control by combining shapes as pies go splatting by! In order to fill the holes and solve these deliciously dangerous puzzles, you’ll manipulate 2D shapes by rotating, slicing, and re-combining simple shapes into increasingly more complex ones.

Learning Goals
Identifying two-dimensional shapes, such as rectangles, squares, and triangles, and combining shapes to fit a pattern.
