New game teaches fact from fairy tale
The popular agricultural gaming site MyAmericanFarm.org just released a new game for students in kindergarten through second grade.
“Fact or Fairy Tale,” is a trivia-like game that helps kids learn valuable science lessons. The game is fun and fast-paced, allowing kids to help a character named Jacob Justthefacts discover the truth about where their food, fiber and fuel are produced.
As they play, students are encouraged to continue helping Jacob uncover the truth by evaluating which statements are facts or fairy tales. After answering enough questions, participants are rewarded with a new stamp to add to their Passport for Sustainability—the tool that helps youth keep track of their journey through the various My American Farm online games.
The new game is one of 15 games that will be featured at the American Farm Bureau Federation annual meeting, Jan. 8-11 in Honolulu. The game kiosks will be located in the Farm Bureau Tradeshow and the Foundation Booth, as well as near the Cyber Café and exhibitor seminar rooms.
The new My American Farm game also will be featured at the Agriculture Ali’l Luau event at the Polynesian Cultural Center on Jan. 9. State Farm Bureaus seeking more information about the game should contact Curtis Miller (email@example.com) at 202-406-3700.
The My American Farm educational gaming resource is a special project of the American Farm Bureau Foundation for Agriculture. The site and resources are made possible through the generous support of title sponsor, Pioneer Hi-Bred, a DuPont business.
