Educator Review(s)


Educator instructions:Write your review below. If possible include a link to your blog and Twitter handle. Include the date and the version number of the game (if possible.) If you used in this classroom, we'd appreciate you adding links to any resources you used or created under "Resources."


I would rate this game high, the only component I do not see present in the game is the collaboration piece. This game is free to play, easy to navigate, and is provided in several different languages. 3rd World Farm provides players the oppurtunity to explore issues present in third world countries and real life situations, like fires and illness, that can effect the farm. The game also gives students an insight to having a farm and/or running a business. At the end of each year the game gives a summary of how the year went.
This game is meant for older students and allows them to work with their understanding of spending and earning. The game makes players think critically to how they can have the most productive year and takes into account several different real world aspects. @SaraHartman11
