Climate Changing: A Series of Thought Provoking Events
Play this game of Rizk from the Science Museum
in London. The goal is to grow a plant, but you must protect it from the Threats that are released when you use resources to grow your plant. This is a sophisticated game that should hold the interest of a middle schooler and, possibly, even one in high school. The instructions are very detailed with lots of examples to show how to play. There are 15 levels to the game so there are plenty of opportunities to use critical thinking skills to balance the resources necessary for plant growth and assess the environment to determine what is the best to insure the plant’s health.
