Calendar Clowns is a fun way for students to practice navigating a calendar and using calendar vocabulary to solve math problems. Students will see a message on the top of the screen such as "What day is two weeks after the 6th?" Students must use their clown "stamp," chosen at the start of the game to mark the 20th on the calendar. The game ends when the student marks up the entire calendar.
