Description & Features

Spider Island™ software games develop critical thinking skills in a fun-filled game of pursuit that taxes each player’s reflexes and thinking skills. Students try to make their way through a maze while being pursued by spiders. When a spider catches a player, the player must solve the spider’s riddle or problem to escape the spider and continue the escape.

Spider Island™ - Riddles I improves language skills in spelling, vocabulary, word use, and understanding of multiple word meanings. Players carefully read each clue, looking for word associations that will provide or confirm their answers. Only strategy and correct answers allow the player to leave the maze and escape Spider Island™!
