HB Recommended by NSTA

The NSTA recommends Hungry Birds!

Hungry Birds (HB) is a video game that immerses players in the hunt for food and demonstrates how strategies inevitably change in a changing environment. In effect, players experience natural selection and see how it impacts populations of living creatures.

It’s available free as an iPad app for use in classrooms.

Here’s what the reviewer says, “This is a great little app that is useful in its simplicity. It can be played by various ages and the depth of the environmental and genetic discussions can vary, depending on the users’ sophistication. It was designed primarily for 5–12 year–olds but works for both older and younger.”
