The Lost Lunchbox
Skills Reinforced: Math, Spelling, Reading, History, Geography, Music, P.E., and many others
What can you do? Inspired by a children’s book I wrote about six years ago, and one I hope to get published, thelostlunchbox.com is the culmination of an educational project I have been trying to produce for several years. I believe it is the web’s first role-playing, educational game for elementary school students. Students have to pass various educational challenges in whimsical classrooms within an enchanted school to obtain clues, secret codes, lock combinations, and secret passages for finding the location of the lost lunchbox as well as “magic pencils,” the currency of the game. The lostlunchbox.com functions like a real video game in which students can save their progress. It was designed to work like a combination of the Legend of Zelda, Harry Potter, and regular elementary school. Be careful though, the game is very challenging and the classroom challenges can be involved. For example, the student will have to mix the correct amounts of ingredients to make a volcano erupt in a science lab experiment. Students will have to study cryptic clues to solve state geography riddles and search carefully through a list of words to find one that is misspelled. Nevertheless, kids will be increasing their knowledge while having a blast trying to solve the game. The graphics are incredible. While the game doesn’t collect any sensitive personal information (other than e-mail address and state or country of residence) users under 13 years of age must get parental permission before playing.
