Companion Teacher Guide for the best-selling educational CD-ROM of the same name. The CD is an interactive adventure program that encourages those aged 9+, including adults, to truly explore the features of the Internet. Rhino presents a first person view of a mysterious island. Using 3-D graphics, realistic sound, real actors and vivid animation, the player explores this strange and mysterious world by clicking in the direction they wish to go. Though the program uses a simulation of the Internet, once completed there is an option for connecting live from the program to the Internet for extended features. While using the simulated Internet to gather clues, do research and find other helpful information, the player solves the mystery of the lost Black Rhino. There's extensive zoological and geological information, and we've created over 200 Web pages for the program! Along the way the player meets many interesting characters, documents their findings and faces exciting challenges. Data analysis and critical thinking are exercised as players search, browse, send e-mail, create Web pages and browse news articles.
