Ansel and Clair: Little Green Island HD

Category: Geography

Ages: 5-7 7-11
Price: Android - £1.25 iPhone/iPad - £1.49
Ansel and Clair's little green island App is an ecological simulation game with 18 levels where each level presents an environmental issue and then lets kids figure out how to solve it.  After a student creates an account, the app announces: "Congratulations you are the new owner of Green Island!" As they see trash, oil spills, and more, they must fix the problems and earn Green Bucks to buy things like trees to beautify the island. There's also an industrial town and another residential town where kids see environmental no-nos.
The app covers issues such as recycling, pesticides, planting, pollution, natural eco-systems, Acid rain, wind farms, solar power and the ozone layer. Each topic has further information that the students can explore.
The app allows up to four accounts. The game is great fun and incredibly addictive. We recommend that the app is taught in topics and levels as reaching up to Level 18 may take some time. When a player completes all 18 levels, the island is beautiful, natural, and rainbow-framed. A beautifully presented app that teaches a wide topic base and is excellent fun.

  • How changes outside your island still impact you as neighboring islands, Folksville and Smokey Island evolve and change over 18 game levels
  • From 9 fun little songs that explain pollutants]
  • Make real world connections: E.g., Oil Spill off Green Island – Exxon Valdez; Sign the 3 Island Protocol to stop using ozone products – Montreal Protocol

The app beautifully juxtaposes “a user created and nurtured Green Island” against a pollution-filled industrial town called Smokey Island, and a residential town called Folksville. As the user progresses through levels, see the farm disappear and replaced by a neighborhood, which eventually evolves into a big city. On Smokey Island, see the burnt down forest evolve into a pollution-filled industrial town.
