Habitat Simulator

This website is great to teach students about different type of organisms that live in different types of habitats. It is extremely interactive, like a game, but the students can explore different animals and different habitats. The students can navigate their character around the habitat using different super powers that are fitting for that habitat to move in different directions. Once they encounter an animal in the game they will  move up next to it and the game will give you information based on that animal and will let you click the bottom of the screen in your “creature pod” to find out more about that animal. This allows students to feel like they are playing a video game, while at the same time they are navigating the habitats and learning all about different animals that live there. The students can write down in their science notebooks what they discover about the different animals, and share it with their groups. The students will truly love this habitat game.
