In this adventure, a wicked archaeologist unleashes chaos. Kids will strengthen reading and math skills while solving puzzles and collecting clues.
Journey to exotic Egypt on an archaeological dig with the ClueFinders. Your mission: to uncover a sinister plot to unleash a dangerous ancient force upon the world. The ClueFinders need your help; but be warned, you'll need spirit, spunk, and smarts to solve tricky challenges along the way. From building a bridge to interpreting mysterious scrolls, every activity is a thrill-packed learning opportunity, tailor-made for eager fourth graders. Kids explore 21 dynamic activities made just for fourth graders, and progress through four increasingly challenging skill levels. Along the way, they will build more than 60 essential fourth-grade skills in math, language arts, science, geography, and problem solving. There are tricky spots to get around, with a boost from the detailed built-in help feature.
The learning process can be extended after the computer is turned off with the Real World Adventure Kit included in the program. It lets kids create cool maps for treasure hunts with the Map Maker. The Logbook and Calendar can be used to plan activities, keep on schedule, and record daily thoughts and achievements. Create, encode, and print top-secret messages with the Encoder/Decoder, and make good dollars-and-cents sense with the Money Tracker. The Sound Transformer can change the sound of your voice, your dog's bark, or any sound you can record.
