Creature Caretaker for Critical Thinking

Happy Pi Day! GlassLab is an innovative company for Critical Thinking in Classrooms. They developed a new game that helps build students’ critical thinking and proportional reasoning skills.  With Creature Caretaker students receive instruction and feedback on finding unit rates and using proportional reasoning to keep their creatures happy. Designed for grades 5-8, Creature Caretaker can also be played by younger students ready for a challenge, or older students in need of review.
