Description:

In The ClueFinders’ 3rd Grade Adventures, children solve individual problems or sets of problems involving mathematics, logic, geography, science, reading, and language arts. Each of the program’s 24 activities builds on third graders’ growing abilities in abstract thinking, problem solving, and logical reasoning as well as on their avid interest in mystery and adventure. Numerous activities call on children to apply essential mathematics, reading, and language arts skills taught in the third grade classroom. Additional activities encourage children to review as well as broaden what they know in two key content areas — geography and science. Children can play the game at any of four levels.

Deep within the Numerian rain forest, the ClueFinders—Joni, Santiago, Leslie, and Owen—have stumbled upon a mystery. The animals are disappearing. The goo is being polluted. And now, Joni’s Uncle Horace, a well-known scientist, has disappeared, just as he was about to shed some light on the strange happenings in the forest. The ClueFinders need your help. They have heard a legend about Mathra, a monster who was believed to have terrorized the inhabitants of ancient Numeria. The ClueFinders think that Mathra has returned and is responsible for the current troubles in the rain forest. They also believe that to solve the mystery, they will need to find the keys to the ancient Lost City. Rescuing Uncle Horace and the animals, stopping Mathra, and restoring order to the rain forest will take courage, patience, and many different types of skills. The ClueFinders are waiting for you. Are you ready to join them on their important mission?

Great Content - My 2ed grader has been working on this game obsessively for 2 days. I have to work with him and give him strategies for solving the problems or he would resort to guessing until he got the right answer. A wide variety of skills are addressed and the character/story line is engaging enough to motivate him to continue through the most challenging exercises. We are learning core skills without the battle of sitting him down with a pencil and paper :). I have had 0 technical problems with the program.

Pricy game with old graphics a big disappointment!!! - purchased this game for \$14.99. A big disappointment as the the main game displays on the tiny area in the center. There is no option to mazimize the play area. Kids had hard time to play due to main gain display in the smail area. The price does not justify the old graphics of the game. I want my money back!! thanks,

Excellent for nostalgia, but crashes - I bought this app because I loved this game as a kid and wanted to revisit it, and it's exactly what I remembered and looks great. But it crashes near the end of the game after you complete the red bridge at the bottomless pits of doom and recrashes whenever you try to start over again, which is why I'm only giving it 3 stars.

Same Problem as uglypottamus… Crashes at last level. - My little twin brothers adored with game and whipped through it- unfortunately, they had the same issue as uglypottamus where the game crashed right as the kids moved to the final level of the game. It was so dissappointing for them to work so hard to get there and need to start all over. :( Hopefully it will be fixed soon?

Great - I recently have been trying to play this game again like I did as a child but my disk was not working with any new laptops. I’m so glad I found this app! I bought the game to relive some childhood memories and it worked fine and did not crash for me at the end. It was a great trip down memory lane :’) Would reccomend if you enjoyed the game as a kid.

GOOD BUT CRASHES - THE KIDS LOVED THE GAME BUT AT A CERTAIN POINT IN THE STORY LINE THE GAME CRASHES. I HAVE SO FAR SENT TWO REPORTS OFF TO THE CLUE FINDERS 3RD GRADE SUPPORT AND THEY HAVE NOT REPLEID BACK IN OVER A WEEK. I WILL GIVE IT 5 STARS IF THEY WILL FIX IT FROM CRASHING.
