Information for Teachers
Survival was developed to playfully introduce students to environmental science, begin discussions of the negative and positive impacts of human actions (or inactions), discover global connections, etc. You can even play it to practice a foreign language or use it in your social science class to prime a discussion.
The game was played with many students and adults alike. The reviews have been great. Even more importantly, the feedback I recieved from the students indicates that they recognize what I hoped they would.
Survival is available for FREE, but once you have started playing you may want to purchase the game. Your students will want to play it a lot!
