Healthy Heights

Healthy Heights is an interesting game created by Regence, a health care company in the Western US, and designed to increase awareness of health care costs.  You proceed through several levels of "helping" people in a community who complain of various ailments, directing them to a clinic or hospital depending on the severity of the problem, and also use preventive measures such as exercise or healthy eating.  The game would definitely appeal to upper elementary or middle school students who have grown up with games like The Sims, and would spark discussions about health, wellness and categories of health problems.



Language Lens

  • Students need to think quickly and make judgments accurately to proceed through the levels of the game, using higher-level categorization skills. 
  • The activity would align well with curriculum around health and wellness, and also spark discussion about cause-effect relationships.
