Title: Walden, A Game
Url: https://www.waldengame.com/educators/
Publisher: USC Game Innovation Lab
Description: Educators may want to check out this interactive ecology game that is the perfect introduction to a unit on Henry David Thoreau and other naturalists. The game invites players to step into Thoreau's shoes as he lived a self-reliant life at Walden Pond in Massachusetts. Players will explore Thoreau's time in the woods, learning about the challenges he faced, as well as his sources of inspiration. Educators can build off of the game by employing the curriculum guide, which includes lessons on media literacy, environmental science, history, art, math, and more. The game is compatible with Windows or Macintosh computers, as long as the device has a 3D graphics card and adequate memory. The game was created by the USC Game Innovation Lab with support from the National Endowment for the Humanities, Advancing Scholarship in the Humanities and Social Sciences, Art Works, the National Endowment for the Arts, and the Sundance Institute. The supplementary curriculum guide was produced in partnership with Journeys in Film. Walden is currently free for educators and homeschooling caregivers, and readers should follow the instructions at the top of the page at the link above to request access.
