### YOUR SUPER CHALLENGE:

#### Grade 6 Super Challenge: Your challenge is to complete any 3 games from the list below. A game is only completed when you finish all the questions in the game. You may try some games first to see which ones you would like to play. For games that have different versions, (Standard/Advanced, Money, Metric/Imperial etc), you only need to complete one of the versions. If you do other versions of the same game, it is still counted as only one game.

#### If you shut the game down, you will have to play from the start again. But if you write down your answers on the worksheet as you play, you can catch up to where you left the game. *(The worksheet is optional.)*

#### Once you have fully finished 3 different games, you have completed your challenge and may download your Certificate of Congratulations! But don’t stop there, challenge YOURSELF to see how many more games you can complete!
