Place Value Game
The goal of the Place Value Game is to create the largest possible number from the digits the computer gives you. Unfortunately, the computer will give you each digit one at a time and you won't know what the next number will be. You are not allowed to rearrange any of the digits you have already placed, so think carefully before you lock a number in place! Good luck!

Wordle is a site for generating “word clouds” from text that you provide. The clouds give greater prominence to words that appear more frequently in the source text. You can tweak your clouds with different fonts, layouts, and color schemes. The images you create with Wordle are yours to use however you like. ASK YOUR TEACHER if you can print them out.

Treasure Hunt
This site is exactly what it says! You need to find your grandpa's treasure before other hunters do! You need to use skills such as traveling north-east or south-west and know which direction is which! Also, you will have to use the grid that is provided to reach certain coordinates (32,12) etc. Good luck! Find that treasure!

Mystery Island
Poor Eric! He's back from the Treasure Hunt and now is stranded on a deserted island. Everyone talks in symbols and there are many obstacles that are blocking his way off the island. It is another adventure game (with less to do about mapping, but it is a lot of fun and we like that!) so give it a try.
