Help Carl and his friends enter the school raft race challenge. Use your math skills to collect the four items needed to build a raft. Complete as many activities as possible to enhance the quality of your raft. Practice your skills with basic operations, symmetry, time, equations, diagrams, and more. When finished, watch what happens when Carl and his friends enter the race!

tag(s): equations (137), symmetry (37), time (107), venn diagrams (18)

#### In the Classroom

Introduce the Raft Race on your interactive whiteboard or projector. Allow students to explore and play on their own. Share a link to the site on your class website for students to play at home. Use this site as an anticipatory set or "activator" to introduce a unit or lesson on time, symmetry, equations, and more. Use ideas from this activity and have students create an annotated image including text boxes and related links using a tool such as Thinglink, reviewed here, to explain what they learned.

In the fractions section in the lumber yard, there is an error in the program. Even though an activity is listed as correct, the program does not place a check mark on the activity to show that it was completed successfully. Note from the editor: Thank you for the information about this tool. Sharon, PA, Grades: 0 - 8
