Students using a mouse or touch screen for the first time will feel like they are at the carnival as they play the six games in this program. Those with visual or learning impairments will be pleased with the program's simple yet lively design. Non-readers and readers alike can enjoy the games and animated rewards. In Ghost Train, click on doors to see a dancing spider, squeaking bat, flying witch, and more. Click or touch the screen to make a number of balls smash into a row of coconuts. Darts is set up in the same way as Coconut Shy, but is designed for older users. Dancing goldfish are the reward in Ring Toss when students drag rings and drop them around a fish bowl. Prizes pop out of barrels and make pleasing sounds in Grab Bag. The Bumper Cars activity is sure to be a hit with kids as they place animated children in cars and then watch them glide and collide around a rink. Fun carnival music accompanies each activity. Teachers and students can choose from two levels of difficulty for each activity. At the easier level, children touch an object on the screen and are rewarded with noise and animation. Color and number matching, as well as activities testing short-term memory skills, are great for more advanced users. Ideal for use by individuals, small groups, or in a free play setting.
