Pearl Search - An Interactive Subtraction Game


DEEP in the ocean is a challenge for your maths skills.

Sitting on the ocean bed are a number of clams, and if you get the right answer to a subtraction puzzle, you can pluck the pearls from inside those clams. Each pearl has a number on it – if the pearl you click on has the right answer to the subtraction question, it’s all yours!

This game for kids in early elementary grades has two modes: easy and super. In easy mode, all the clams sit open, showing off their pearls while you work out the right answer and click on it. In super mode, the clams are only open for a short time, so you have to be quick to click the right one!

Before the game starts, you can also choose from five levels – level one tests on numbers 1-2 through to level five testing 7-9.

The game keeps track of how many questions you get right – and if you score highly enough you could feature on the high score table. So grab those pearls in a polished performance and show the world what you can do!
