Eco Zoo
Eco Zoo is a great online resource that teachers can use to teach young students about the world's major environmental issues. As the opening scene loads in the form of a very short movie clip, the following words appear in both Japanese and English across the screen: "The Eco Zoo. If you take a close look at the animals there you might be able to get some tips to live in a more environmentally friendly way." This simple sentence describes the goal of the "game" which is for the student to rotate and move the view of the world up the impressively tall Eco Zoo plant to find each of the animals that live there. One of the most impressive aspects of this online game is how graphically beautiful the scenes are, and the rich and vibrant animals sounds that burst from the computer speakers in a beautiful symphony of birdsong and other sounds of the forest.
