Accessibility Statement: Food & Activity Trends Over Time

What´s the Story? Interactive Timeline

Accessibility for educational games is a work in progress across the industry. We continually seek solutions to make our products fully accessible, and we strive to adhere to established standards for accessibility and usability on each new project. Some of our older products may not be accessible in all areas and have not been optimized for current accessibility recommendations. Here, we offer the content and approach of this game, so that learners are better able to find alternative content and ways of learning.

Content of modules: Food & Activity Trends Over Time lets users explore how US consumption of various foods has changed from 1960 to the early 2000s, as well as trends in obesity and in TV viewing (as measured by the number of TV sets per household). By clicking boxes next to these various categories, the user can see them plotted on a line graph.
