Abstract

In this paper, we propose and develop a full-body interaction system and simulation game called "Human SUGOROKU," which helps elementary school students learn about vegetation succeßion while having fun. We found that the students became more involved in the game because they were required to play it using their body movements. An experiment conducted with students verified that the participants became immersed in the virtual world of vegetation succeßion while playing Human SUGOROKU. This paper describes the structure of our game and the results of its evaluation.
