History Through Literature: Study Guides

An online game that is a trek through a forest in central Africa. Your guides are four modern African teenagers from different tribes who share their knowledge of the forest with you along the journey to discover "The Ways of the Knowing Trail." You will discover edible plants and insects, ways to make shelter, information about animals that make the forest their home, practical uses for bark and other materials the forest provides, and you will learn about tribal life as well. When you get to the site the game will load and begin automatically. The screen will prompt you to click on the teenage guides or on images on the screen in order to move through the game. It takes a good 20 minutes or so to progress through the whole game, examining all of the features in the forest. So, when you have the time to explore, take the whole family on a virtual visit to Africa. Enjoy! click here
