Track changes to the earth's surface, just like a scientist through this image comparison game. View ten pairs of satellite images to view surface changes, evaluate the causes, and select from options that caused the image changes. Players get two tries to get the correct answer. Along with the right answer, each choice shares the image's location and a short explanation of the featured event.

tag(s): climate change (87), earth (185), landforms (37), population (47), weather (163)

In the Classroom

Use this game to introduce any unit on geographic changes, climate change, or landforms and geography. Consider sharing and discussing the first pair together as a class and share ideas for how to analyze each pair of images using the information provided, such as dates and options for choices. Include the game as part of a computer center, then ask students to choose one event to research further. For example, choose the images representing changes due to flooding and research flooding issues on rivers near your location. As a final project, enhance learning by asking students to share their findings by creating infographics using Canva Infographic Maker, reviewed here.
