I played Food Force, by the way. It lasted me about an hour (for all six missions), and while it wasn’t cutting edge it was more fullfilling than either playing Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith or Second Life for an hour (both of which I did earlier the same day – this was during my “break” in case you couldn’t guess). I actually learned about the World Food Program, something I knew nothing about before, and was excited about it.
Unfortunately, when I tried to visit the details on the lesson plans posted at the web site (above), the links were broken. Has anyone had any better luck?
At any rate, try it out… try it with students… and let me know what you think.
