Students master essential reading skills as they race to rescue Mega Robot. When they respond correctly to questions about Making Inferences or Predicting Outcomes, they collect cards they need to win. An engaging game board comes with 50 Making Inference cards, 50 Predicting Outcome cards, 6 player pieces, and a die.

This game has been a huge hit with my ESL students. I play it one-on-one with them. When it is their turn to read a card, I have them read the story aloud, giving them an opportunity to see and speak English correctly. When I read a card, I don't allow them to see the card, thus allowing them to concentrate on understanding spoken English. One of my students told me that this game has helped him with English more than anything else we have done. Robot Rescue has been such a success that I have ordered the other similar games: Space Voyage, Super Speedway, and Jungle Journey.
