Growing Up Ojibwe: The Game

Website, Grades 3-8

In Growing Up Ojibwe: The Game, players take the role of an Ojibwe youth, sent on a mission by their grandmother to learn important knowledge that has been forgotten by many. The game offers middle school students an introduction to Great Lakes Ojibwe history using relevant content that satisfies learning requirements set by Act 31. In addition to information about treaty rights, tribal sovereignty, and harvesting activities, it also includes an Ojibwe language component with Ojibwe words used throughout the game. An easy to read points-system displayed on the levels screen can help educators gauge a student’s level of engagement with the material.
