The Fin, Fur and Feather Bureau of Investigation (FFBI) is an international website for kids grade 4-5 chronicling the exploits of an unusual, animal-run detective agency. The site invites Field Agents to solve interactive mysteries on two FFFBI missions: Rainforest Undercover-an adventure to the Galapagos and the Amazon; and Operation GAS-Chicken--a fowl genetic experiment threatens Mars.
The site uses innovative interactive
stories and cleverly disguised original thinking games to get kids to solve
mysteries and learn crucial skills along the way, such as using the Internet
for research and investigation, critical thinking, reading, and writing.
