Teaching Time: Tug Team Giraffe Pull
It’s an intense game of tug of war for up to eight students as they try to out-time their opponent. Teams are split into two as they race to be the first to answer the time-related questions. How quick students correctly answer determines how fast your giraffe will tug. Whichever team tugs the other team past the flag first wins!
Jet Ski Addition
Up to four students at a time can battle one another as they jet ski their way through addition problems. Addition problems appear on the top of the screen and in order to power their jet ski, the students must answer the question correctly. The quicker they give the correct answer, the faster their jet ski will go. this game defiantly adds speed to your students addition skills.


And once I had a teacher who understood. He brought with him the beauty of mathematics. He made me create it for myself. He gave me nothing, and it was more than any other teacher has ever dared to give me. ~cochran
