    SO I played the Estuaries game and it was very fun and imformative but also extreamly frustrating. Half the time the otter thing was asking me "who tought you to drive?" and me and my little brother were cracking up. This game also made me think about all those Estuaries that are about to be totally attacked by the oil spill. It really is going to be one of the worst catastrafies that will ever happen to the marine life and not just in the gulf but in other places too it's spreading like crazy!. I'm kind of shoked Levi hasn't commented yet I mean he was making enough little nouses in class but I guess he's to smart. But I just really would like oil drillers to be more secure. I also was watching the news and the people were interviewing if other people were still for offshore oil drilling. These people said "well I don't think there is any secure way for them to do it so umm i guess not" and that is pretty much all the answers they got. I was just thinking if they had you for a teacher a lot of there opinions would change I know mine has.

  2. The game I played was "Water Life,Where River Meets Sea". I think this is a great game to play if you are looking to learn about estuaries and their importance to our environment. Before I played this game I didn't know much about estuaries, but playing this game really informed me on how important to certain ecosystems estuaries are and how detrimental it would be to a coastal ecosystem if we did not have them. I did fairly well playing this game but if I played it again I'm sure I would do much better because of the knowledge I learned from the game.

  7. This game really helped me and gave me an idea by how the estuaries are getting destroyed because of horrible human interaction. I wish a lot more people could play this game to see what is happening to are planet, they will volunteer to save these estuaries and lower the risk for our erth. The game was very fun. :)
