The Antarctic Food Web Game

The Antarctic Food Web Game is an online game produced by WGBH to support middle school lessons on food chains and Antarctica. The simple game presents students with charts and tables about animals and plants found around Antarctica. Students have to take the information presented to them to create a correct food web. The key to creating a correct food web is understanding where various animals fit in the food chain.

Applications for Education
The Antarctic Food Web Game can be played online or you can download it from PBS Learning Media. The game itself is rather simple. It is not something I would build a lesson around, but it is something that I would include in a classroom blog post for students to use as a quick test of their understanding.
