Many of you may be familiar with the Food Force game developed by the United Nations.  It puts players into the position of having to be relief workers in distressed areas, and teaches about world hunger issues at the same time.  It’s also an excellent opportunity for English Language Learners to read and listen to English.

Food Force is very popular, but it’s generally only available if you download it into your computer.  However, this National Geographic site allows you to play it all online, which, as far as I can tell, is the only place where that is possible.  It obviously makes it a lot easier to for students at school to use.

I’ve placed the link on my World History page at the bottom of the Toward The Twenty-First Century section.
