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.
Critical Thinking in Classrooms
GlassLab is hosting a field study and they are looking for teachers and students to participate. Students must be in grades 5-8, have a basic understanding of multiplication and division, commit 2.5-3.5 hours over a half dozen session, and available April 6-17, 2015.

If you and your students are interested in participating, please send them your info as soon as possible to reserve a spot in the field study!
