A Game to Teach Geography/History: Find Your Way Home

In this game, you and your classmates pass through a mysterious portal and end up... SOMEWHERE ELSE! Maybe you're in the middle of the ocean, or in a strange land where everyone speaks another language! Your teacher will describe the land, the sights you see there, what the people are like and how they sound. You and your classmates decide together on a course of action as you play, and with the teacher, you create the story of what happens in this land.

As young scholars of geography, it's your job to find out where you are, and that's the only way you will find your way home. Towards this end, you may use resource materials like atlases, encyclopedias, and the internet to research. For advanced players, introduce the fact that portals can also travel through time! You could be anywhere, and anywhen!
