        Plum’s Island Explorer: Land and Water

        Navigate around the island to explore various landforms and water bodies in this interactive game from PLUM LANDING. Journey around the island and pick up trash to unlock information—including videos and ground-level and aerial images—about specific landforms and water bodies. Students use the game and associated supports to observe, identify, and record characteristics of common landforms and water bodies as they navigate and represent the landscape from an aerial perspective on a map.

        For best results, play this game in full-screen in Chrome or Firefox. If you're using iOS devices, a free app version of the game is available here.
