New on GameUp: Flap to the Future

Posted by jglassman on

We are excited to present our newest game, Flap to the Future, from our partner The Cornell Lab Bird Academy.  This immersive game encourages exploration of bird adaptations that evolved over millions of years enabling flight. Students begin the game as a feathered but earthbound small dinosaur and travel through evolutionary time, unlocking new flight adaptations as they move up levels. Students learn which predators to avoid in each adaptation, and how evolutionary changes alter survival odds.

For lesson plans, tips, videos, printables and ideas for using the game in your classroom, explore our Lesson Ideas page.
