Creature 101 Food Game for Kids

Teen science wizard Murphy created a wormhole to another world. To gain the trust of this world's creatures he gave them sweets, chips, soda, TV and video games. The creatures loved these “gifts” so much that they started to replicate them. Then Murphy saw something disturbing. The lively creatures he had first encountered were getting sick. Can you help Murphy save them? Adopt a creature and show the creatures of Tween how to get back on the healthy track!

Creature 101 is a free online game designed after the inquiry-based nutrition science curriculum Choice Control and Change (C3) that aims to promote healthy eating and physical activity behaviors.

Although anyone can create an account and play, Creature 101 is particularly designed for 6-8th grade students and their teachers. It can be used alone or in addition to C3.
