This fun Web site is part of OLogy, where kids can collect virtual trading cards and create projects with them. Here, they take a close-up look at biodiversity in a city park. The site opens by telling kids that, despite appearances, a great deal of biodiversity exists in cities. From tiny mites to mighty trees, thousands of species thrive there. It then takes them to a slice of life from a thriving city park, where they are asked to find 10 hidden critters living alongside the trees, plants, and insects. Each time they locate one of the tiny critters, they are rewarded with a quick look at its importance to the habitat.

Liyla and the Shadows of War
Rating
0.0 stars

Liyla and the Shadows of War is based on actual events and tells a story of a little girl who lives in Gaza during the war in 2014. The minimalist, story-driven platform challenges players to avoid bombs, drones, and other dangers while guiding a family through the hazardous Gaza strip. You must solve puzzles, respond to changes in the environment and make brave, difficult decisions in order to survive.
The game allows players to experience war from the perspective of a civilian and see the devastating effects of war on children. Face your fate with time running against you, your family in danger, and nowhere to hide. The game communicates that when you live in war zone and death is hunting everyone, things will look different and choices become harder; all you can do is get to a safer place.
