pamela 12/15/2016Good for who can follow simple directions!!!
katespencer 12/15/2016This was fast and enjoyable. I didn't know what they were testing, so I made a key, which kind of made my input compromised. (They were testing memory for using other letters to id colors and sides).
jred8987 12/15/2016This game is a great way of teaching students that they need to pay attention to what they are doing and to follow directions.
