*This game was designed and developed by Gemcraft Games for Washington DC based startup, Legends of Learning and appears on their educational games platform to be used by middle-school students in the US.*
Dr. Jones guides students through the African Savanna ecosystem.
Kids learn about food webs and food chains and how the energy flows from lower to higher levels. They find out about the different organisms within the ecosystem and how they interact with each other.
They built their own food pyramid and watch how it evolves turn after turn and make adjustments to improve their final score.
They answer relevant questions and get bonuses if they answer correctly or receive penalties if they provide wrong answers. Both the bonuses and penalties impact their ecosystem so they have to pay attention to the lessons integrated within the game.
