The Watershed Game

Logo for The Watershed Game
An interactive planning game, this site allows visitors to test their knowledge on two levels: Novice and Intermediate. The Novice level provides a basic lesson on watersheds. The Intermediate level has four interactive modules covering watersheds in Natonal Parks, Argiculture, Neighborhood, and City. Each module has concise, illustrated text and questions reflecting real-life situations. Although geared toward primary grade learners, the site could be valuable to educators at all levels.

I thought this website was very informative. I really liked after all of your
answers are submitted how it told why the option you chose was the
best/worst/medium possible option.

I think a game like this definitely could teach students a lot about watershed
management.

I spent about 45 minutes investigating this game. This is a quiz game that has
an easy and intermediate level. Great for school children. I think this would
be a good supplemental assignment to go along with class work on ecology and
environment.

Technical Remarks:

The website was extremely easy to navigate, there were directions throughout the
game.

I really enjoyed this website. I ended up being a dragonfly, which I guess
isn't that bad. I really liked the set-up, very easy to use and understand. I
think this would be a fun game for children. I learned quite a few things from
it. Could be used as a good learning tool for teachers/students.

Technical Remarks:

Very user-friendly, easy to navigate, colorful, lots of pictures to add
interest,
