Dreambox Adventure Friend Checklist

In the Dreambox K-2 Environments, students complete lessons in the Adventure Park with the help of Stella. They are invited to play through four themed stories (Pirates, Pixies, Dinosaurs, and Pet Friends).

While working on lessons, students earn tokens and discover Adventure Friends based on their current theme. The tokens can be spent on math-based games in the Arcade. Use the checklist attached below to keep track of the Adventure Friends over the summer!
