  • National Geographic’s Crittercam game provides plenty of basic keyboard practice as players help film lions.
  • PBS has an African Exploration with a challenging question and answer game, lots of information, and lesson plans. The “For Kids” section is no longer available, but older students will find many learning opportunities.
  • The Brookfield Zoo has an animated game called “In Search of the Ways of Knowing Trail.” Kids make decisions to get through the story, encountering facts and challenges along the way.

Taking a virtual field trip or two will enrich your study of Africa and help students get a more accurate mental picture.
