Penguin Jump Multiplication is a great fun game that students can test their multiplication knowledge with. The goal of the games is to navigate your penguin home by jumping on the iceberg that has the correct answer for the question that is put to you. Up to 4 players can play at a time. You can join a public game with players from around the world or you can play with your friends in a private room you can create. When the game is finished you find out your time and the questions you missed along the way. You can even print the trophy you earn at the end. This is a great game to bring up on the IWB.
